(Fwd) Re: apm hangs my system


Hey, i want a message at boot time saying "The IPsec code in this
operating system brought to you by Angelos D. Keromytis" :-))))))))
- -Angelos

PS. Well, the original code anyway. Niels Provos might want a similar

PS2. Another message for John Ioannidis as well, as he's a co-author.

PS3. Let's not forget Theo.

PS4. Umm...how about everyone has a line with his name at boot time ?

If you're using -current supped last night, on an i386 machine with
pci, you are using code to which Chris Demetriou's new license applies.
You are therefore required to "conspicuously and completely" display an
Acknowledgment reading "This product includes software developed by
Christopher G. Demetriou for the NetBSD Project." whenever you mention
that system in "informational...materials of any kind", such as
messages to port-i386.  (See /usr/src/sys/dev/pci/pci.c for the full
text of the relevant license.)

As I was unable to find a copy of the Acknowledgment in your message, I
assume you are unaware of this requirement, hence this letter.  Please
be more careful in the future; I don't want NetBSD users to acquire a
reputation of ignoring licensing terms, as that will discourage
potential future developers.
