Hello.

Gnuplot44 included unclear/unknown licensed code.


#File List Start:

A) "gnuplot-4.4.2/src/color.*"


B) "gnuplot-4.4.2/src/bf_test.c"

This file "B" copyright infomation is: 

"Copyright (c) 1992 Robert K. Cunningham, MIT Lincoln Laboratory"


C) "gnuplot-4.4.2/src/binary.*"

This file "C" copyright infomation is: 

"Copyright (c) 1991,1992 Robert K. Cunningham, MIT Lincoln Laboratory"


#File List End:


Why ?

A) "Open Source" is not license.

B) No license infomation. but This author is listed GNUPlot Contributor. See: http://www.gnuplot.info/docs_4.4/gnuplot.pdf

C) No license infomation. but This author is listed GNUPlot Contributor. See: http://www.gnuplot.info/docs_4.4/gnuplot.pdf

This problem already reported. (Gnewsense).

I suggest that resolve license problem.
Thanks.

Comment 1 mejiko 2016-05-09 12:34:47 UTC
I'm sorry. I'm wrong.

C) is incorrect. (Wrong file path.)

Correct is: gnuplot-4.4.2/src/binary.c (NOT gnuplot-4.4.2/src/binary.h)
