That is possibly the worst-written license I have seen in quite some
time, but I actually think it is acceptable for Fedora for the reasons
Tom and Eric gave.
Thanks Richard and Tom! What should I use for the License tag in the RPM?
I've sent email to Bryan Sparks asking whether he is still in a
of authority to deal with CP/M licensing, and if so, whether he might
grant a license under a common open source license; I suggested possibly
BSD 2-clause. However, I have no idea whether the email address I found
for him will actually work.
Oh man, that will be a fun one. It seems that Lineo was the last known
owner of the CP/M copyright (Digital Research -> Novell -> Caldera ->
Lineo), but Lineo was carved up and its assets went all over the place.
I _think_ the most likely place is with DrDOS Inc. (formerly
DeviceLogics), where Bryan Sparks is the current CEO (afaik).
In the mean time, I'm intending to package "z80pack"
for Fedora. That
includes emulation of various 8080 and Z80 systems. There are various
disk images included. I'll put the CP/M images in a subpackage. I think
there may be licensing issues with some of the other disk images, so I
may have to produce a cleaned source tarball that omits those.
Yeah, be careful, but that sounds right.
