As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.

2 Reiserfs is a file system based on balanced tree algorithms, which is described
3 at www.namesys.com.
7 ReiserFSprogs is hereby licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2
8 but with the following "Anti-Plagiarism" modification: You may not remove any
9 credits or brand marks, or cause them to not display, unless you are an end
10 user (that is, you are not redistributing to others). Yes, there really are
11 people with the nerve to remove credits from software they did not write, or
12 only wrote a small part of, and they are even frequently occurring sad to say.
13 Credits are not ads, credits describe someone's contribution to the project
14 (e.g. labor or money) whereas an ad says something else.
16 Source code files that contain the phrase "licensing governed by
17 reiserfsprogs/README" are "governed files" throughout that file. Governed files
18 are licensed under this license. The portions of them owned by Hans Reiser, or
19 authorized to be licensed by him, have been in the past, and likely will be in
20 the future, licensed to other parties under other licenses. If you add your
21 code to governed files, and don't want it to be owned by Hans Reiser, put your
22 copyright label on that code so we can keep things straight. It will be a
23 kindness if you identify whether Hans Reiser is allowed to license code labeled
24 as owned by you on your behalf other than under this license, because he wants
25 to know if it is okay to do so and put a check in the mail to you (for
26 non-trivial improvements) when he makes his next sale. He makes no guarantees
27 as to the amount if any, though he feels motivated to motivate contributors,
28 and you can surely discuss this with him before or after contributing. You have
29 the right to decline to allow him to license your code contribution other than
30 under this license or the GPL. Further licensing options are available for
31 commercial and/or other interests directly from firstname.lastname@example.org<P>

36 Hideous Commercial Pitch: Spread your development costs across other OS
37 vendors. Select from the best in the world, not the best in your building, by
38 buying from third party OS component suppliers. Leverage the software component
39 development power of the internet. Be the most aggressive in taking advantage
40 of the commercial possibilities of decentralized internet development, and add
41 value through your branded integration that you sell as an operating system.
42 Let your competitors be the ones to compete against the entire internet by
43 themselves. Be hip, get with the new economic trend, before your competitors
44 do. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
