#422 closed bug (fixed)

please make license of minpoly.* clearer

Priority: minor Milestone: 3-1-5 and higher

Keywords: Cc:


Singular/minpoly.* have their own copyright header:

Copyright (C) 2011 Sebastian Jambor

but no explicit license listed and Singular/ seems to imply it was not developed as part of Singular

  /*==== connection to Sebastian Jambor's code ======*/
  /* This code connects Sebastian Jambor's code for
     computing the minimal polynomial of an (n x n) matrix
     with entries in F_p to SINGULAR. Two conversion methods
     are needed; see further up in this file:
        (1) conversion of a matrix with long entries to
            a SINGULAR matrix with number entries, where
            the numbers are coefficients in currRing;
        (2) conversion of an array of longs (encoding the
            coefficients of the minimal polynomial) to a
            SINGULAR poly living in currRing. */

and there is no other mentioning of Sebastian Jabor, so it would be nice if there could be some explicit mentioning that this file is available under the same GPL as the rest of Singular
