Subject: LICENSING terms unclear

LICENSE says:

this Net-SSLeay library is issued under the "Perl Artistic License 2.0", the same license as Perl itself.

 

Perl itself is *not* issued under Artistic 2.0, but is Dual Licensed under GPL-1+ and Artistic 1.0

 

Additionally, Makefile.PL says:

license        'perl';

 

And META.yml says:

'perl'

 

Both of these values imply the Perl 5 License, which is of course, the dual-licensed GPL-1+ and Artistic  1.0 License

 

Here is Perl 5 stipulating its license:

 

https://metacpan.org/source/RJBS/perl-5.22.0/README#L83

 

I suspect you were reading http://www.perlfoundation.org/cpan_licensing_guidelines and potentially confused it saying that the 2 licenses it described were equivalent, when I believe it meant to imply they were competing alternatives.

Hmmm, interesting question. Im the current maintainer of net-ssleay, which was originally written by Sampo Kellomaki, who set the licensing terms. It may well be that his intention was indeed just Artistic 2.0. I will have to consult with him to ascertain his views. Cheers. On Sunday, August 09, 2015 06:26:04 AM you wrote: Show quoted text
