PathTools-3.26 changed the license and the copyright notice in Cwd.xs, removing references to the University of California. However, Cwd.pm still says parts of Cwd.xs are copyrighted by UCB. Please fix the inconsistency. Thanks for your work, -- Niko Tyni ntyni@debian.org

Without checking, I suppose that was at least in part my fault. I'll put it on the todo list. Until I get the time slice to find out how it happened, I am entirely certain that the old copyright remains valid. Best regards, Steffen

Yes, as part of that same commit there's this note in the Changes file: - abs_path() on Unix(ish) platforms has been upgraded to a much later version of the underlying C code from BSD. [Michael Schwern] I assume we simply need to update the corresponding info in Cwd.pm? Show quoted text

Yeah, sounds right. -Ken

This is what I find in dist/Cwd/Cwd.pm as of this date: ##### Portions of the C code in this library are copyright (c) 1994 by the Regents of the University of California. All rights reserved. The license on this code is compatible with the licensing of the rest of the distribution - please see the source code in F<Cwd.xs> for the details. ##### This suggests that there is still work to be done in this ticket -- correct? Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
