Title: GPL-Header
Post by: dino4k on February 27, 2007, 11:27:46 am
Hi there,

while diff'ing the ioquake and openArena I discoverd that nearly all source files include the following:
 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
along with Foobar;

I think you like to correct this ;)

This is actually a problem on id's part, the original q3 source release has this for its headers

strange,

i was wonderwing cause it seems ioquake does not contain the "foobar" string. Anyway imho it shouldn't be a (legal) problem changing it.

Code:
~/quake3/code$ grep -iR foobar * | wc -l
10

Yes, ioq3 does contain the foobar string.

Yeah, it seems the forgott to replace *some* strings :p

Code:
./oa$ grep Foobar . -r | wc -l
268

[edit]

counted correctly there are 5 Foobars in ioq and 134 in oa. We both counted copys in the .svn directorys :p

Heh, in the next release there should only be 5 "foobars" to replace d-;
