3--------------------------

5This license covers the following ARB-libraries:
6
7 - CORE-library
8 - ARBDB-library
9 - PTSERVER-library
10 - PT_COM-library
11 - all ARB libraries needed by any of the above libraries.
12
13   Currently these are:
14    - PTCLEAN,
15    - HELIX,
16    - SERVERCNTRL and
17    - server + client (PROBE_COM).
18
19 These libraries currently cover the following subdirectories of the ARB source tree:
20   - ARBDB
21   - CORE
22   - PROBE
23   - PROBE_COM
24   - SERVERCNTRL
25   - SL/HELIX
26   - SL/PTCLEAN

29The ARB libraries listed above may be used by projects distributed under the Gnu public
30license (GPL) under the following conditions:
31
32 * a copy of the ARB license (arb_LICENSE.txt) is provided
33 * a copy of the ARB public library license (arb_PUBLIB_LICENSE.txt) is provided
34 * all copyright notices remain intact when redistributing the source code
35 * you may use unmodified or modified versions of these libraries:
36   - when using MODIFIED versions of these libraries, the modified source code has to be
37     distributed together with your project or made available for free public download.
38     Please note that by doing so the ARB project and its maintainers gain the right to
39     adopt your changes into ARB.
40   - when using UNMODIFIED versions of these libraries, you may (but don't need to)
41     provide the library sources. If not provided, you have to add a reference to the
42     arb-version that has been used.
43
44All files which are part of ARB and which are needed to build the above mentioned
45libraries, may be distributed together with your project (but do not fall under the
46ARB-public-library-license themselves).
47
48Config files needed by the above libraries may be freely copied (e.g. arb_tcp.dat).
49
50This license does only grant additional terms of use for the covered libraries,
51while the main ARB license still remains valid for them.
52
53The ARB maintainers may (but most likely ever wont) cancel this license for future
54versions of ARB. Doing so will not affect earlier versions of arb distributed together
55with this license.
56
57If you'd like to use these libraries in a project distributed under a different license
58than GPL, please ask us for permission to do so.
