Subject: Add A Copyright Statement

Hi there: There is currently no copyright year in any of your distribution files, nor in your COPYING file (which only includes License and not Copyright information) One of our developers on the Debian pkg-perl team contacted you some time ago and you responded with an e-mail explaining it [1]. However, right now we have to distribute the full text of that e-mail message with our package as a rationale for determining the copyright. If you add copyright years to your copyright statement in the future, then we can remove that from our packages. Note [1]: ----------------------- AnyEvent did not include a proper copyright statement, therefore I mailed the author for clarification: Received: from mail.nethype.de (mail.nethype.de [78.47.73.129]) by sweetshadow.cloudconnected.org (Postfix) with ESMTPS id B3D8D47C59 for <mxey@cloudconnected.org>; Sun, 18 Jan 2009 19:25:19 +0100 (CET) Received: from [10.0.0.5] (helo=doom.schmorp.de) by mail.nethype.de with esmtp (Exim 4.69) (envelope-from <root@schmorp.de>) id 1LOcCg-00027y-O8; Sun, 18 Jan 2009 18:16:58 +0000 Received: from [10.0.0.2] (helo=fuji.laendle) by doom.schmorp.de with esmtp (Exim 4.69) (envelope-from <root@schmorp.de>) id 1LOcCg-0003OR-HZ; Sun, 18 Jan 2009 18:16:58 +0000 Received: from root by fuji.laendle with local (Exim 4.69) (envelope-from <root@schmorp.de>) id 1LOcCg-0005n7-7R; Sun, 18 Jan 2009 18:16:58 +0000 Message-ID: <20090118181658.GC22157@schmorp.de> Date: Sun, 18 Jan 2009 19:16:58 +0100 From: Marc Lehmann <schmorp@schmorp.de> To: Maximilian Gaß <mxey@cloudconnected.org> Cc: debian-perl@lists.debian.org, elmex@x-paste.de, elmex@plan9.de Subject: Re: AnyEvent license […] The relevant information would be: - The author(s) name Marc Alexander Lehmann, Robin Redeker - The year(s) of the copyright 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 - The used license(s) See the file COPYING. - The URL to the upstream source either cpan, or the software.schmorp.de package link, wherever you got it from.

Hi! You sent a possible bug report on or via rt.cpan.org. Please read this mail carefully if you want to be heard. Most likely, your report will be ignored. Please close the ticket again and sent it to the official contact address for the module in question (or send it to rt.cpan.org@schmorp.de). Why is this necessary? rt.cpan.org has many deficiencies which makes it tedious and hard to use, increasing the workload on the people who provide all the perl modules you probably appreciate (and that is really to be avoided - module authors should be able to invest all their time into improving their modules and not fighting with rt.cpan.org's bugs). Still, for some people, rt.cpan.org is useful to have, and some people even like it and really want to use it. That is fine, too. Unfortunately, the designers of rt.cpan.org didn't make their "service" optional - you can neither opt-in nor opt-out of rt.cpan.org as a module author. Just like a spammer, rt.cpan.org forces its "service" (whether wanted or unwanted) on everybody. Just like a spammer, they don't care for the people they actively hurt. Just like a spammer, they don't don't care to fix these issues and make their "service" ethically acceptable. You cannot even configure it to redirect tickers to somewhere else. Unfortunately, ignoring rt.cpan.org is not an option either: for people reporting possible bugs there is no indication that their report will be ignored, and for module authors it means they miss possibly vital bug reports (and of course it's a great impression if rt.cpan.org has lots of bug reports that are unanswered, making a module unmaintained when in fact the opposite might be true). This is why it is important that you delete your ticket again. I am sorry that this wasted a bit of your time, but please understand that I am just as much a victim as you are - the problem is the unethical stance of the rt.cpan.org providers who force their "service" on everybody. Please redirect your bug report as stated in the beginning of this mail, and please consider petitioning the rt.cpan.org providers to stop their unethical behaviour and allow opt-in, opt-out, or some redirect option. Thanks a lot, Marc Lehmann <rt.cpan.org@schmorp.de>

From the author via private e-mail: Since debian adds these requirements for their own reasons (unlike legal requirements), I see no reason to burden poor upstream maintainers with debian-specific stuff. Surely it's not a problem to distribute a single short file with the distribution? Bug closed. On Tue May 19 14:58:51 2009, FREQUENCY wrote: Show quoted text
