I am preparing sbcl from devel:languages:misc project for Factory
submission and I am not sure if the package should be BSD-2Clause or
public domain or maybe a SUSE vaiant of these.
The web page of the sbcl http://www.sbcl.org/history.html> describes
itself as follows
SBCL is derived from CMU CL, and carries the same licensing terms, a
mixture of BSD-style (for a few subsystems) and public domain (for the
rest of the system).
Some of the files in CMU CL have a BSD-style license requiring that
credit be given to the institutions which owned the copyright to the
original versions: Xerox, Inc., the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, Symbolics, Inc., and Gerd Moellmann. For these files, SBCL
necessarily uses the same BSD-style license as CMU CL did.
The rest of the files in SBCL (as in CMU CL) are in the public domain.
The boilerplate at the beginning of SBCL source files looks like this:
;;;; This software is part of the SBCL system. See the README file for
;;;; more information.
;;;; This software is derived from the CMU CL system, which was
;;;; written at Carnegie Mellon University and released into the
;;;; public domain. The software is in the public domain and is
;;;; provided with absolutely no warranty. See the COPYING and CREDITS
;;;; files for more information.
The COPYING file at is similar to the above
Guidance will be very much appreciated
