00:25 harovali idiosyncrat_: keep the perl licesing scheme is wise

00:40 ronsavage Oops. I've been checking some modules of mine, and they - so far - all use the Artistic Licence.
00:46 idiosyncrat_ ronsavage: 1.0 or 2.0?
02:49 ronsavage V 2 for sure. I did find a couple out of (100+) which said Apache. This results from my practice of copying an existing module's dir to get started on a new module. I'll have to watch that!
02:50 ronsavage The other problem is that on github, Perl is not listed as a licence option when creating a new repo, so I fell back to Artistic.
02:51 ronsavage The Terms of Perl itself licence file starts off with:
02:51 ronsavage Terms of Perl itself
02:51 ronsavage a) the GNU General Public License as published by the Free
02:51 ronsavage Software Foundation; either version 1, or (at your option) any
02:51 ronsavage later version, or
02:51 ronsavage b) the "Artistic License"
02:55 ronsavage Now, if it said 'Artistic Licence, either version 1 or later', then that'd be better. I checked https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html which I guess you did, and I see I can click a link to https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/License:ArtisticLicense2.0 but under the discussion of the Perl licence (Perl V 4 or 4) I can't click an equivalent link. Why is that?
02:56 ronsavage Oops. That's 'V 4 or 5'.
02:58 ronsavage Hmmm. This page http://www.perlfoundation.org/legal doesn't even refer to a Perl licence.
02:59 ronsavage More here: http://www.perlfoundation.org/cpan_licensing_guidelines
03:00 ronsavage I think we can assume the Perl Foundation mean literally CPAN modules and are not referring to any underlying C etc code.
03:04 idiosyncrat_ Progress in the refactoring:
03:05 idiosyncrat_ The NAIF recognizer is now completely gone -- no data structure, no methods, and no file.
03:06 idiosyncrat_ ronsavage: re http://www.perlfoundation.org/cpan_licensing_guidelines
03:06 idiosyncrat_ Thanks -- that is the page I've been looking for.
03:42 idiosyncrat_ Next in the refactoring: eliminate NAIF grammar objects, including their class, data structure and methods.
04:24 idiosyncrat_ Good night!

17:40 idiosyncrat_ I just posted something to the G+ group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/marpa-parser/Zw_KXUE94z8
17:41 idiosyncrat_ It's a "soft" announcement of Marpa::R3, plus
17:41 idiosyncrat_ a RFD on the Marpa::R3 licensing.
17:42 idiosyncrat_ My current idea is to use the "Perl license".  The precise language I'll use is "under the same terms as Perl 5.10.1", because this is the form that the Perl Foundation suggests.
20:55 * teatime will be back tomorrowish.
