The Yagnus License

posted Mar 6, 2011, 8:13 PM by Herbert Bright   [ updated Mar 6, 2011, 8:17 PM ]
Dear users, contributors and friends, along with our release of version 0.0.4, I am also very happy to announce the first public draft of the Yagnus License version 0.1, which we have not put into effect around all Yagnus software. The license is reproduced below. We are still in the process of refining this license. It is expected that the license will change periodically, but it will always be checked into the same tag that it is applicable to. 

Happy coding!! :-)
