Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2012-11-30 08:58:42 UTC
See Copyright file in tarballs (essentially the same for both versions 0.51.1 and 6.0.0).

I believe that the following is an approximation good enough for our purposes:
    myspell-ispell-GeoffKuenning (in Attic, needs to be revived, maybe renamed)
Comment 1 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2012-11-30 09:05:52 UTC
@Licenses team: myspell-ispell-GeoffKuenning is here: <>

This is BSD-4 with the additional clause: "All modifications to the source code must be clearly marked as such ...", therefore I think it could go to @MISC-FREE.

Restored from Attic, updated (clause 4 has been removed), renamed to "Ispell", and added to MISC-FREE license group.
