The recent release of tt-rss contains a php class floIcon.php, which has the following statement in its license header:
Original floIcon copyright (C) 2007 by Joshua Hatfield.
In order to use any part of this floIcon Class, you must comply with
the license in 'license.doc'. In particular, you may not remove this
The license.doc is not bundled with tt-rss, so I searched for the floIcon source code and found it on this page. The code does not match exactly, so maybe your version has an updated license, but the license file I found states:
Any running version of floIcon must include my name in the login and/or
intitial connection sequence. Furthermore the if there is a credit section
or command in any application using floIcon, it shall always contain my
name, addresses, and a notice which states I have created floIcon.
I could not find the name Joshua Hatfield anywhere in the tt-rss login sequence.
In short: I think the following changes are needed in tt-rss to comply with the floIcon license:
- add floIcon's license.doc
- add the floIcon copyright notice to login sequence
Last but not least the license is not compatible to many Linux distributions (at least Debian and Ubuntu), because it does neither comply with the Debian Free Software Guidelines nor the Open Source Definition. Thus I will patch the library and its usage out of the Debian package.
