Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) gentoo-dev 2020-05-07 10:03:11 UTC
Top level and most files say "perl5", but some files mix saying "under Artistic 1" and "under the same as Perl5", and others only reference Artistic 1.

Thus, presently Artistic is the only license we can positively say is required.
