Description Lucio Sauer 2023-09-02 02:43:08 UTC
The README says it's BSD licensed but that's not the actual copyright notice (COPYING and COPYING.ko). The license appears to be Baekmuk and it also has a SPDX entry:

From what I can tell it's a broadly permissive license permitting free use, redistribution and modification as long as COPYING and COPYING.ko are distributed with the software.
I suggest adding it to the MISC-FREE license group.

Reproducible: Always

I just found the BAEKMUK license in ::gentoo...

The one I linked to is the updated version. It's also available on ::guru.
