Subject: Unicode Mappping tables are missing Unicode Inc. license notification
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.3k
Encode-2.51 contains ucm directory with Unicode Mappings tables. E.g. ucm/8859-1.ucm starts with: # # $Id: 8859-1.ucm,v 2.0 2004/05/16 20:55:19 dankogai Exp $ # # Original table can be obtained at # http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/ISO8859/8859-1.TXT # However linked <http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/ISO8859/8859-1.TXT> states: # Copyright (c) 1991-1999 Unicode, Inc. All Rights reserved. # # This file is provided as-is by Unicode, Inc. (The Unicode Consortium). # No claims are made as to fitness for any particular purpose. No # warranties of any kind are expressed or implied. The recipient # agrees to determine applicability of information provided.

It's possible your UCM files from 2004 did not contain this license notice, but current files request `this notice to remain attached'. This way or another, I think the ucm directory is missing the Unicode copyright and license notice (embedded into each file or as standalone file).

I think the addition of this text, even though contained in the data files they make available for download, is a little bit unfortunate, or perhaps misleading. Show quoted text

This does not explicitly permit modification or the distribution of modifications, and as such fails to meet the criteria of the Debian Free Software Guidelines. Unicode, Inc. have however relicensed their software and data under a DFSG-free license, as can be seen at http://www.unicode.org/copyright.html#Exhibit1, without changing the comment headers of their data files. May I suggest including a file ucm/LICENSE containing the following text: --8<--- Files in this directory were downloaded from http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/ They are covered by the following copyright and licensing: Copyright © 1991-2013 Unicode, Inc.
