Bergman General Public License

Copyright (C) 1992 - 1999 Jörgen Backelin.
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license, but changing it is not allowed. You can also use this wording to make the terms for other programs.

This license uses essentially identical wording as the GNU Emacs General Public License (Richard Stallman and the Free Software Fundation, Inc.), for similar reasons.

Copying policies

  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of bergman source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy a valid copyright notice "Copyright (C) 1992 Jörgen Backelin" (or with whatever years or authors are appropriate); keep intact the notices on all files that refer to this License Agreement and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the bergman program a copy of this License Agreement along with the program. You may charge a distribution fee for the physical act of transferring a copy.
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of bergman source code or any portion of it, and copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of Paragraph 1 above, provided that you also do the following:
    1. cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change; and
    2. cause the whole of any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is a derivative of bergman or any part thereof, to be licensed at no charge to all third parties on terms identical to those contained in this License Agreement (except that you may choose to grant more extensive warranty protection to some or all third parties, at your option).
    3. You may charge a distribution fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

    Mere aggregation of another unrelated program with this program (or its derivative) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other program under the scope of these terms.
  3. You may copy and distribute bergman (or a portion or derivative of it, under Paragraph 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Paragraphs 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
    1. accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
    2. accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party free (except for a nominal shipping charge) a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
    3. accompany it with the information you received as to where the corresponding source code may be obtained. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form alone.)

    For an executable file, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains; but, as a special exception, it need not include source code for modules which are standard libraries that accompany the operating system on which the executable file runs.
  4. You may not copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer bergman except as expressly provided under this License Agreement. Any attempt otherwise to copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer bergman is void and your rights to use bergman under this License agreement shall be automatically terminated. However, parties who have received computer software programs from you with this License Agreement will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.

No warranty

Because bergman is licensed free of charge, we provide absolutely no warranty, to the extent permitted by applicable law. Except when otherwise stated in writing, Jörgen Backelin and/or other parties provide bergman "as is" without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the program is with you. Should the bergman program prove defective, you assume the cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction.

No event unless required by applicable law will Jörgen Backelin and/or any other party who may modify and redistribute bergman as permitted above, be liable to you for damages, including any lost profits, lost monies, or other special, incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use or inability to use (including but not limited to loss of data or data being rendered inaccurate or losses sustained by third parties or a failure of the program to operate with programs not distributed by Jörgen Backelin) the program, even if you have been advised of the possibility of such damages, or for any claim by any other party.
