on license variability


dmg
 

First, some common equivalent words/phrases:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
license|licence
distributable|licensed|released|made available
can|may
terms and conditions|terms
library|program|software
developed|written
MERCHANTIBILITY|MERCHANTABILITY
is|are
do not|don<quotes>t
the copyright|that copyright
would|will
IN THE SOFTWARE
WITH THE SOFTWARE
deal in|deal with
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The quotes are also very different in different files:

quotes can be ``, '', ", '

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Finally, this is a subset of the way Ninka recognizes the BSD3
clauses. I believe this will cover most versions. The numbers preceding
the conditions are sometimes not there (Ninka drops them, or any bullets
before it continues with the processing).
