Did the same thing to FileHandles than I did to DirHandles, but this triggered massive tweaking in physfs.c. A lot of code got little cleanups, which was nice. Less malloc pressure, too, since opening a file used to allocate a ton of crap and mush it together...now it's basically down to one structure and the instance data in whatever archiver.

Original discussion is partially quoted in here, thread is archived at:

These are the emails I got approving the change to a zlib license. I have
removed the authors' email addresses for spam safety.  --ryan.

Sounds fine to me.  And it makes it easier for me to use it in d2x. (which has a
very confusing license)

As mentioned before, I'm all for the license change since it would

Hi Ryan,
Sorry for the delayed response. (email troubles at
Stanford among other things)

I approve of a switch to the zlib license for
code I own in PhysicsFS, so you can sign off
everything I have there.

Thanks,
Eric

You know, I don't think I ever contributed code to physfs, but if you

switch it to the zlib license...

Hi Ryan!

For your mailfilters:

"I approve of a switch to the zlib license for code I own in PhysicsFS."

The change of license makes sense, what use is a library when the target
audience is reluctant to use it. Keep up the good work.

Btw. if you need any other non-babelfish english -> german translations
just contact me.

Hello.  Sorry for delay in reply, things've been messed up for the last couple 
while..

I think that changing it to the Zlib license is a great idea...  never 
realized there were those sort of complications with the LGPL - thought it 
was a much less restrictive license than your plain vanilla GPL, but I guess 
not less restrictive enough.  I've no problem at all with you putting any of 
the code I've contributed under the Zlib license.

Hi,

I have just read the news on icculus.org and I guess I'm one of the
two contributors you could not contact (at least I did not got any
mails from PhysicsFS mailing list for quite a while - so I did not
know what was happenning). 

I really have no problems with this licence switch from LGPL to zlib
and I agree to sign all my contributions (qpak archiver, ruby bindings
and russian translations) under zlib.

I saw that you removed all my contributions from PhysicsFS - now that
I agreed to license change you could revert them. 

-- Ed

P.S. I have mail on icculus.org - if you can't reach me I guess
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is always possible.
