Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble
********

This license establishes the terms under which a given free software
Package may be copied, modified, distributed, and/or redistributed.  The
intent is that the Copyright Holder maintains some artistic control over
the development of that Package while still keeping the Package
available as open source and free software.

You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly outside of this
license directly with the Copyright Holder of a given Package.  If the
terms of this license do not permit the full use that you propose to
make of the Package, you should contact the Copyright Holder and seek a
different licensing arrangement.

the Standard Version, including, but not limited to, documenting any
non-standard features, executables, or modules, and provided that you do
at least ONE of the following:

(a) make the Modified Version available to the Copyright Holder of the

Standard Version.

(c) allow anyone who receives a copy of the Modified Version to make the
Source form of the Modified Version available to others under

(ii) a license that permits the licensee to freely copy, modify and

apply to the use and Distribution of the Standard or Modified Versions
as included in the aggregation.

(8) You are permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions with other
works, to embed the Package in a larger work of your own, or to build

Items That are Not Considered Part of a Modified Version
********************************************************

(9) Works (including, but not limited to, modules and scripts) that
