Hi I'm currently updating the Var-Pairs module in Debian written by Damian Conway, which introduces a new dependency on your module Devel::Callsite. So while preparing the package for Devel::Callsite I noticed that it doesn't seem to mention any copyright nor license information. Copyright/license information is needed in order for us (and others) to be able to legally distribute the software. Could you please give us (replying to this bug report is fine): years of copyright, copyright holders' names, copyright holders' e-mail addresses (if appropriate). This is more than just a Debian issue. I'm not a lawyer, but it's my understanding that both copyright and licensing information is vital for the continued success of open source software. Copyright is what allows you to assert a license, and a license is what gives others the rights to use and re-distribute your software. A great article discussing some of this is "What is Copyleft?" by Richard Stallman: http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/ Thanks for releasing your work to the CPAN. I apologize in advance for the noise, as I understand that the last thing most authors want to deal with is legal administrivia like this. I do hope, however, that you could (in your continued generosity) help us with this request. Please also consider adding these statements to your code/package README, since we must distribute some evidence of copyright information if it is not in the source package itself. Regards, Salvatore, On behalf of the Debian Perl Team

OK with me. Rocky Bernstein contacted me directly and said he was going to take care of it. Do you still need me to do something? Assigning to Rocky for now. Thank you! Ted

Changes are now in git. But please let's move discussion to the git issue tracker https://github.com/rocky/Perl-Devel-Callsite/issues . I'll close the ticket here when things are finally resolved.
