#498 closed bug (fixed)

missing license statement in LIB

Reported by: felix@… Owned by: hannes
Priority: minor Milestone: 3-2-0 and higher
Component: singular-libs Version: 3-1-6
Keywords: license Cc:

Description

The files in Singular/LIB are missing a proper license statement. Please make it more clear that these files are distributable under the GPL.

The four files all.lib factor.lib ncall.lib tst.lib are perhaps meant to be covered by COPYING. Please make this more explicit -- they don't even include a copyright statement in their headers.

(this affects at least 3-1-6 and 3-1-5)

factor.lib: not an official library -> removed also from the sources all.lib: automatically generated (we will add COPYING to the script) ncall.lib: subset of all.lib ? do we need it ? tst.lib: only used for tests, not in distrubtion -> to discuss

ncall.lib: subset of all.lib ? do we need it ?

There are quite a lot of people who are interested mostly in NC-stuff and thus use it e.g. in examples for articles.

Therefore removing it will do no good for newbies trying to repeat any published code that use it.
