[ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
[ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
[ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.
Tahoe-LAFS is licensed to the public under the "Transitive Grace Period Public
Licence 1.0" [*]. Tahoe-LAFS is Free and Open software. The "Transitive Grace
Period Public Licence" is an Open Source licence.
Is that true? Or is it just a hypothetical example?
I don't recall studying this license. I am not sure what it says. It
is not in our license-list.html page. So I don't know whether it is a
free software license, and if it isn't, then Tahoe-LAFS is not free
If you send me the text of this license, I can study it.
