Subject: Spelling; "all rights reserved" and open source licences
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 309b
In Module::Install::Metadata, you spit out warnings about "all rights reserved may invalidate open source licence". Is there any justification for this, is or is just paranoia? Also, the license_from function (and anywhere else that you're looking for a licence) needs to look for both spellings of licence.

The "invalidation" was based on a misunderstanding of the advice from the TPF lawyers to Allison, and from her then to me. The ACTUAL situation is that "All rights reserved" has become utterly meaningless since the creation of the Bern Convention in 1968 and only remains due to cargo culting. I need to fix this in M:I at some point, or someone else with commit does. Adam K 2008/11/28 David Cantrell via RT <bug-Module-Install@rt.cpan.org>: Show quoted text

Someone else with commit access has just done so. ;) Revision 4617 in subversion. I'm glad this is resolved, this warning bothered me as well. I'm marking this ticket as resolved unless there's further changes that need to be made to address this issue. All the very best, Paul
