Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2020-05-06 10:48:05 UTC
- Sometimes says "perl license" ( Artistic-1 || GPL-1+ )
- But also stipulates that the "perl license" means ( Artistic || GPL ), when that is not the case.
- Mixes in LGPL-2 and LGPL-2+ thinking they're the same thing.
