Please free Spamgourmet's source code

Postby lwc » Mon Oct 28, 2013 9:42 am

Spamgourmet's source code is available via an Artistic License. But since it doesn't mention which version, I guess there's no escape from accepting it's version 1.0.
The Free Software Foundation declared v1.0 as a non-free license and recommended against using it on its own.
The Open Source Initiative recommends all developers and projects to switch to from Artistic License 1.0 to 2.0 (currently the latest).
It should also be mentioned that version 2.0 has been around for years.

BTW, I think there's even a bigger problem. The source code doesn't actually contain the license and thus violates it...

Any thoughts about it?
