    8 Exception 1:
    9 
   10 As a special exception you may create a larger work which contains the
   11 output of this application and distribute that work under terms of your
   12 choice, so long as the work is not otherwise derived from or based on
   13 this application and so long as the work does not in itself generate
   14 output that contains the output from this application in its original
   15 or modified form.

   18 
   19 As a special exception, you have permission to combine this application
   20 with Plugins licensed under the terms of your choice, to produce an
   21 executable, and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under
   22 the terms of your choice. However, the executable must be accompanied
   23 by a prominent notice offering all users of the executable the entire
   24 source code to this application, excluding the source code of the
   25 independent modules, but including any changes you have made to this
   26 application, under the terms of this license.

   31                     GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
   32                        Version 3, 29 June 2007
   33 
   34  Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
   35  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
   36  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
   37 
   38                             Preamble
   39 
   40   The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
   41 software and other kinds of works.
   42 
   43   The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
   44 to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
   45 the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
   46 share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
   47 software for all its users.  We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
   48 GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
   49 any other work released this way by its authors.  You can apply it to
   50 your programs, too.
   51 
   52   When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
   53 price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
   54 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
   55 them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
   56 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
   57 free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
   58 
   59   To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
   60 these rights or asking you to surrender the rights.  Therefore, you have
   61 certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
   62 you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
   63 
   64   For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
   65 gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
   66 freedoms that you received.  You must make sure that they, too, receive
   67 or can get the source code.  And you must show them these terms so they
   68 know their rights.
   69 
   70   Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
   71 (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
   72 giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
   73 
   74   For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
   75 that there is no warranty for this free software.  For both users' and
   76 authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
   77 changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
   78 authors of previous versions.
   79 
   80   Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
   81 modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
   82 can do so.  This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
   83 protecting users' freedom to change the software.  The systematic
   84 pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
   85 use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable.  Therefore, we
   86 have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
   87 products.  If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
   88 stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
   89 of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
   90 
   91   Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
   92 States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
   93 software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
   94 avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
   95 make it effectively proprietary.  To prevent this, the GPL assures that
   96 patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
   97 
   98   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
   99 modification follow.
  100 
  101                        TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  102 
  103   0. Definitions.
  104 
  105   "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
  106 
  107   "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
  108 works, such as semiconductor masks.
  109 
  110   "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
  111 License.  Each licensee is addressed as "you".  "Licensees" and
  112 "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
  113 
  114   To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
  115 in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
  116 exact copy.  The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
  117 earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
  118 
  119   A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
  120 on the Program.
  121 
  122   To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
  123 permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
  124 infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
  125 computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
  126 distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
  127 public, and in some countries other activities as well.
  128 
  129   To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
  130 parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user through
  131 a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
  132 
  133   An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
  134 to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
  135 feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
  136 tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
  137 extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
  138 work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
  139 the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
  140 menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
  141 
  142   1. Source Code.
  143 
  144   The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
  145 for making modifications to it.  "Object code" means any non-source
  146 form of a work.
  147 
  148   A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
  149 standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
  150 interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
  151 is widely used among developers working in that language.
  152 
  153   The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
  154 than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
  155 packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
  156 Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
  157 Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
  158 implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A
  159 "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
  160 (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
  161 (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
  162 produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
  163 
  164   The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
  165 the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
  166 work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
  167 control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's
  168 System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
  169 programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
  170 which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source
  171 includes interface definition files associated with source files for
  172 the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
  173 linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
  174 such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
  175 subprograms and other parts of the work.
  176 
  177   The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
  178 can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
  179 Source.
  180 
  181   The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
  182 same work.
  183 
  184   2. Basic Permissions.
  185 
  186   All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
  187 copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
  188 conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
  189 permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
  190 covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
  191 content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
  192 rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
  193 
  194   You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
  195 convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
  196 in force.  You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
  197 of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
  198 with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
  199 the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
  200 not control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works
  201 for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
  202 and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
  203 your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
  204 
  205   Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
  206 the conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
  207 makes it unnecessary.
  208 
  209   3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
  210 
  211   No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
  212 measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
  213 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
  214 similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
  215 measures.
  216 
  217   When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
  218 circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
  219 is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
  220 the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
  221 modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
  222 users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
  223 technological measures.
  224 
  225   4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
  226 
  227   You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
  228 receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
  229 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
  230 keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
  231 non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
  232 keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
  233 recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
  234 
  235   You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
  236 and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
  237 
  238   5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
  239 
  240   You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
  241 produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
  242 terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
  243 
  244     a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
  245     it, and giving a relevant date.
  246 
  247     b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
  248     released under this License and any conditions added under section
  249     7.  This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
  250     "keep intact all notices".
  251 
  252     c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
  253     License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This
  254     License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
  255     additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
  256     regardless of how they are packaged.  This License gives no
  257     permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
  258     invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
  259 
  260     d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
  261     Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
  262     interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
  263     work need not make them do so.
  264 
  265   A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
  266 works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
  267 and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
  268 in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
  269 "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
  270 used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
  271 beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
  272 in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
  273 parts of the aggregate.
  274 
  275   6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
  276 
  277   You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
  278 of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
  279 machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
  280 in one of these ways:
  281 
  282     a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
  283     (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
  284     Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
  285     customarily used for software interchange.
  286 
  287     b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
  288     (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
  289     written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
  290     long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
  291     model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
  292     copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
  293     product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
  294     medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
  295     more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
  296     conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
  297     Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
  298 
  299     c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
  300     written offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This
  301     alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
  302     only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
  303     with subsection 6b.
  304 
  305     d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
  306     place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
  307     Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
  308     further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the
  309     Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to
  310     copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
  311     may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
  312     that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
  313     clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
  314     Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the
  315     Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
  316     available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
  317 
  318     e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
  319     you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
  320     Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
  321     charge under subsection 6d.
  322 
  323   A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
  324 from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
  325 included in conveying the object code work.
  326 
  327   A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
  328 tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
  329 or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
  330 into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
  331 doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage.  For a particular
  332 product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
  333 typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
  334 of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
  335 actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product.  A product
  336 is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
  337 commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
  338 the only significant mode of use of the product.
  339 
  340   "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
  341 procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
  342 and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
  343 a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The information must
  344 suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
  345 code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
  346 modification has been made.
  347 
  348   If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
  349 specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
  350 part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
  351 User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
  352 fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
  353 Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
  354 by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
  355 if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
  356 modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
  357 been installed in ROM).
  358 
  359   The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
  360 requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
  361 for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
  362 the User Product in which it has been modified or installed.  Access to a
  363 network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
  364 adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
  365 protocols for communication across the network.
  366 
  367   Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
  368 in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
  369 documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
  370 source code form), and must require no special password or key for
  371 unpacking, reading or copying.
  372 
  373   7. Additional Terms.
  374 
  375   "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
  376 License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
  377 Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
  378 be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
  379 that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions
  380 apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
  381 under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
  382 this License without regard to the additional permissions.
  383 
  384   When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
  385 remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
  386 it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
  387 removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place
  388 additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
  389 for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
  390 
  391   Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
  392 add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
  393 that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
  394 
  395     a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
  396     terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
  397 
  398     b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
  399     author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
  400     Notices displayed by works containing it; or
  401 
  402     c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
  403     requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
  404     reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
  405 
  406     d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
  407     authors of the material; or
  408 
  409     e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
  410     trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
  411 
  412     f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
  413     material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
  414     it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
  415     any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
  416     those licensors and authors.
  417 
  418   All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
  419 restrictions" within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
  420 received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
  421 governed by this License along with a term that is a further
  422 restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
  423 a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
  424 License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
  425 of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
  426 not survive such relicensing or conveying.
  427 
  428   If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
  429 must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
  430 additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
  431 where to find the applicable terms.
  432 
  433   Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
  434 form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
  435 the above requirements apply either way.
  436 
  437   8. Termination.
  438 
  439   You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
  440 provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
  441 modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
  442 this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
  443 paragraph of section 11).
  444 
  445   However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
  446 license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
  447 provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
  448 finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
  449 holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
  450 prior to 60 days after the cessation.
  451 
  452   Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
  453 reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
  454 violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
  455 received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
  456 copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
  457 your receipt of the notice.
  458 
  459   Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
  460 licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
  461 this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
  462 reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
  463 material under section 10.
  464 
  465   9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
  466 
  467   You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
  468 run a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
  469 occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
  470 to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,
  471 nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
  472 modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
  473 not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
  474 covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
  475 
  476   10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
  477 
  478   Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
  479 receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
  480 propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
  481 for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
  482 
  483   An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
  484 organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
  485 organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
  486 work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
  487 transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
  488 licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
  489 give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
  490 Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
  491 the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
  492 
  493   You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
  494 rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
  495 not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
  496 rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
  497 (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
  498 any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
  499 sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
  500 
  501   11. Patents.
  502 
  503   A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
  504 License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
  505 work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
  506 
  507   A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
  508 owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
  509 hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
  510 by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
  511 but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
  512 consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For
  513 purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
  514 patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
  515 this License.
  516 
  517   Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
  518 patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
  519 make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
  520 propagate the contents of its contributor version.
  521 
  522   In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
  523 agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
  524 (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
  525 sue for patent infringement).  To "grant" such a patent license to a
  526 party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
  527 patent against the party.
  528 
  529   If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
  530 and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
  531 to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
  532 publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
  533 then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
  534 available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
  535 patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
  536 consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
  537 license to downstream recipients.  "Knowingly relying" means you have
  538 actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
  539 covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
  540 in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
  541 country that you have reason to believe are valid.
  542 
  543   If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
  544 arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
  545 covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
  546 receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
  547 or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
  548 you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
  549 work and works based on it.
  550 
  551   A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
  552 the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
  553 conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
  554 specifically granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered
  555 work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
  556 in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
  557 to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
  558 the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
  559 parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
  560 patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
  561 conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
  562 for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
  563 contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
  564 or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
  565 
  566   Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
  567 any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
  568 otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
  569 
  570   12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
  571 
  572   If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  573 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  574 excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey a
  575 covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
  576 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
  577 not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
  578 to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
  579 the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
  580 License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
  581 
  582   13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
  583 
  584   Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
  585 permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
  586 under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
  587 combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this
  588 License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
  589 but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
  590 section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
  591 combination as such.
  592 
  593   14. Revised Versions of this License.
  594 
  595   The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
  596 the GNU General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
  597 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
  598 address new problems or concerns.
  599 
  600   Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the
  601 Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
  602 Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
  603 option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
  604 version or of any later version published by the Free Software
  605 Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of the
  606 GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
  607 by the Free Software Foundation.
  608 
  609   If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
  610 versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
  611 public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
  612 to choose that version for the Program.
  613 
  614   Later license versions may give you additional or different
  615 permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
  616 author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
  617 later version.
  618 
  619   15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
  620 
  621   THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
  622 APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
  623 HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
  624 OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
  625 THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
  626 PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
  627 IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
  628 ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
  629 
  630   16. Limitation of Liability.
  631 
  632   IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
  633 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
  634 THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
  635 GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
  636 USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
  637 DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
  638 PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
  639 EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
  640 SUCH DAMAGES.
  641 
  642   17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
  643 
  644   If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
  645 above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
  646 reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
  647 an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
  648 Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
  649 copy of the Program in return for a fee.
  650 
  651                      END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  652 
  653             How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  654 
  655   If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
  656 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
  657 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
  658 
  659   To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
  660 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
  661 state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
  662 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
  663 
  664     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  665     Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
  666 
  667     This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
  668     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
  669     the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
  670     (at your option) any later version.
  671 
  672     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
  673     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
  674     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
  675     GNU General Public License for more details.
  676 
  677     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
  678     along with this program.  If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
  679 
  680 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
  681 
  682   If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
  683 notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
  684 
  685     <program>  Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
  686     This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
  687     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
  688     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
  689 
  690 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
  691 parts of the General Public License.  Of course, your program's commands
  692 might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
  693 
  694   You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
  695 if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
  696 For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
  697 <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
  698 
  699   The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
  700 into proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you
  701 may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
  702 the library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
  703 Public License instead of this License.  But first, please read
  704 <http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html>.
