-> 
-> There are places where this annoyance can be a
-> showstopper, though. For
-> example, I was contacted about a year ago by a game
-> shop that wanted to use
-> PhysicsFS in a PlayStation 2 title, since the
-> PhysicsFS API combined with
-> its efficient zipfile archiver is _very_ appealing
-> in light of the PSX2's
-> awful native filesystem limitations.
->

-> game? End users can't relink
-> the bugger, after all. Furthermore, their legal
-> department had a fit when they
-> heard about the "viral" nature of the license when
-> statically linking it...
-> there is no such thing as "dynamic" linking on a
-> PlayStation 2.
-> 
-> Now, here's the lesson for any future project
-> maintainers: either don't accept
-> patches, or make sure you own the copyright on _all_
-> the code before accepting
-> it. I have poured years of effort into PhysicsFS,
-> but I don't own all the code,
-> so I couldn't just grant a license exemption to this
-> console developer. End
-> result: they did without.
-> 
-> I don't like my own hands being tied by my own
-> license. That really doesn't
-> seem fair to me.
-> 
-> So for these reasons, I've decided to switch
-> PhysicsFS to the zlib license.
-> The end result of this is that there will be no
-> confusion as to how you can
-> use the library ("any way you like") and how you can
-> distribute it ("any way
-> you like"). The only significant loss is that
-> contributers are no longer
-> legally obligated to give back source changes, but
-> I'm confident that
-> developers will if it's generally useful and
-> relevant to the public. At least,
-> I don't think we should license the library with the
-> assumption that
-> programmers must have their hands forced to do the
-> right thing.
-> 
-> For those that aren't aware of the zlib license,
-> here it is. zlib is used in
-> all sorts of software without you needing to think
-> about it (including
-> PhysicsFS), and the license is by far the simplest
-> I've ever seen. This is
-> the text:
-> 
->    Copyright (c) <year> <copyright holders>
-> 
->    This software is provided 'as-is', without any
-> express or implied warranty.
->    In no event will the authors be held liable for
-> any damages arising from
->    the use of this software.
-> 
->    Permission is granted to anyone to use this
-> software for any purpose,
->    including commercial applications, and to alter
-> it and redistribute it
->    freely, subject to the following restrictions:
-> 
->    1. The origin of this software must not be
-> misrepresented; you must not
->    claim that you wrote the original software. If
-> you use this software in a
->    product, an acknowledgment in the product
-> documentation would be
->    appreciated but is not required.
-> 
->    2. Altered source versions must be plainly marked
-> as such, and must not be
->    misrepresented as being the original software.
-> 
->    3. This notice may not be removed or altered from
-> any source distribution.
-> 
-> 
-> That's that.
-> 
-> 
-> Here's how this works: I've compiled a list of all
-> contributors to PhysicsFS
-> and what was contributed. I need from these people a
-> message saying that they
-> will approve a switch to the zlib license. Nothing
-> fancy, just quote this
-> email and say something like "I approve of a switch
-> to the zlib license for
-> code I own in PhysicsFS." You still own the
-> copyright on that bit of code, but
-> it'll be under the zlib license.
-> 
-> I can't switch the license until all the developers,
-> below, give me permission,
-> or their code has been replaced or removed.
-> 
-> If you contributed something and I missed you,
-> please let me know. If I don't
-> hear from you, I'll try to track you down. If I
-> can't track you down, we've
-> got to remove or replace your code.
-> 
-> For application developers and end users: you use
-> any code up until we switch
-> under the LGPL. After the switch, you can use the
-> older code under the LGPL

-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.

-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.
