SYMPOW is a program for computing special values of symmetric power
elliptic curve L-functions.
Koji scratch build:
I just fixed the launcher script to be multilibs-safe.
I don't believe the license of this package is actually BSD; at least, it's not a BSD variant I've seen before. The third clause is different to me:
Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without
modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions are met:
* Redistribution of source code must retain the above copyright notice,
this list of conditions and the following disclaimer.
* Redistribution in binary form must reproduce the above copyright
notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the
documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution.
* If redistribution is done as a part of a compilation that has a more
restrictive license (such as the GPL), then the fact that SYMPOW has
a less restrictive license must be made clear to the recipient.
For example, a line like (include bracketed text if SYMPOW is modified):
"This compilation includes [a modification of] SYMPOW whose [original]
code has a less-restrictive license than the entire compilation."
should appear in a suitable place in the COPYING and/or LICENSE file.
Blocking FE-Legal for an opinion. I wonder if the third clause might actually render the software GPL-incompatible. And even then, I'd have to leave it to a lawyer to determine what "more restrictive" really means.
Nah, just an odd BSD variant. Free and GPL compatible. Lifting FE-Legal.
