[PHP-DEV] Copyright/License issue
July 25, 2018 01:20AM
Hi!

I've just stumbled upon sapi/fpm/fpm/fpm_status.c[1], which claims
copyright by Jerome Loyet and doesn't state any license. It seems to me
that we must not ship/modify this file. IANAL.

Why do you think that and how is it diffiren to all other fpm files? FPM is
BSD licensed (see the LICENSE file) so I think we can modify any file as we
want and it's been always like this - we have already modified it anyway.
The copyright in the files are for the specific year(s) so I think we
should actually add line below with PHP Group copyright or whatever for the
years when it was modified but not really sure what's the right way to deal
with that...

Cheers

Thanks! I should have checked this more carefully. The LICENSE file in
the folder above may well be sufficient. I would appreciate, though, if
there was a short license hint/indicator in each file (at least if there
is a copyright notice), and indeed it appears sensible to add copyright
lines to indicate that individual files have been modified.
