                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
                       Version 3, 29 June 2007
 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
                            Preamble
10    The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
11  software and other kinds of works.
12 
13    The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
14  to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
15  the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
16  share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
17  software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
18  GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
19  any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to
20  your programs, too.
21 
22    When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
23  price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
24  have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
25  them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
26  want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
27  free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
28 
29    To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
30  these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have
31  certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
32  you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
33 
34    For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
35  gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
36  freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive
37  or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
38  know their rights.
39 
40    Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
41  (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
42  giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
43 
44    For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
45  that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users' and
46  authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
47  changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
48  authors of previous versions.
49 
50    Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
51  modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
52  can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
53  protecting users' freedom to change the software. The systematic
54  pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
55  use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we
56  have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
57  products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
58  stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
59  of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
60 
61    Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
62  States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
63  software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
64  avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
65  make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that
66  patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
67 
68    The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
69  modification follow.
70 
71                         TERMS AND CONDITIONS
72 
73    0. Definitions.
74 
75    "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
76 
77    "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
78  works, such as semiconductor masks.
79 
80    "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
81  License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
82  "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
83 
84    To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
85  in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
86  exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
87  earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
88 
89    A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
90  on the Program.
91 
92    To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
93  permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
94  infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
95  computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
96  distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
97  public, and in some countries other activities as well.
98 
99    To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
100  parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
101  a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
102 
103    An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
104  to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
105  feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
106  tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
107  extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
108  work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
109  the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
110  menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
111 
112    1. Source Code.
113 
114    The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
115  for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
116  form of a work.
117 
118    A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
119  standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
120  interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
121  is widely used among developers working in that language.
122 
123    The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
124  than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
125  packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
126  Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
127  Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
128  implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
129  "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
130  (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
131  (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
132  produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
133 
134    The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
135  the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
136  work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
137  control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
138  System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
139  programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
140  which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
141  includes interface definition files associated with source files for
142  the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
143  linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
144  such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
145  subprograms and other parts of the work.
146 
147    The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
148  can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
149  Source.
150 
151    The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
152  same work.
153 
154    2. Basic Permissions.
155 
156    All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
157  copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
158  conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
159  permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
160  covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
161  content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
162  rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
163 
164    You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
165  convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
166  in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
167  of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
168  with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
169  the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
170  not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
171  for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
172  and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
173  your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
174 
175    Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
176  the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
177  makes it unnecessary.
178 
179    3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
180 
181    No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
182  measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
183  11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
184  similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
185  measures.
186 
187    When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
188  circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
189  is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
190  the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
191  modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
192  users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
193  technological measures.
194 
195    4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
196 
197    You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
198  receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
199  appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
200  keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
201  non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
202  keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
203  recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
204 
205    You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
206  and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
207 
208    5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
209 
210    You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
211  produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
212  terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
213 
214      a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
215      it, and giving a relevant date.
216 
217      b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
218      released under this License and any conditions added under section
219      7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
220      "keep intact all notices".
221 
222      c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
223      License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
224      License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
225      additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
226      regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
227      permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
228      invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
229 
230      d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
231      Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
232      interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
233      work need not make them do so.
234 
235    A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
236  works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
237  and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
238  in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
239  "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
240  used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
241  beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
242  in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
243  parts of the aggregate.
244 
245    6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
246 
247    You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
248  of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
249  machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
250  in one of these ways:
251 
252      a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
253      (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
254      Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
255      customarily used for software interchange.
256 
257      b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
258      (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
259      written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
260      long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
261      model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
262      copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
263      product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
264      medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
265      more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
266      conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
267      Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
268 
269      c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
270      written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
271      alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
272      only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
273      with subsection 6b.
274 
275      d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
276      place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
277      Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
278      further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
279      Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
280      copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
281      may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
282      that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
283      clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
284      Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
285      Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
286      available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
287 
288      e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
289      you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
290      Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
291      charge under subsection 6d.
292 
293    A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
294  from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
295  included in conveying the object code work.
296 
297    A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
298  tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
299  or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
300  into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
301  doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
302  product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
303  typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
304  of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
305  actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
306  is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
307  commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
308  the only significant mode of use of the product.
309 
310    "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
311  procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
312  and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
313  a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
314  suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
315  code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
316  modification has been made.
317 
318    If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
319  specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
320  part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
321  User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
322  fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
323  Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
324  by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
325  if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
326  modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
327  been installed in ROM).
328 
329    The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
330  requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
331  for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
332  the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
333  network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
334  adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
335  protocols for communication across the network.
336 
337    Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
338  in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
339  documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
340  source code form), and must require no special password or key for
341  unpacking, reading or copying.
342 
343    7. Additional Terms.
344 
345    "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
346  License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
347  Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
348  be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
349  that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
350  apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
351  under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
352  this License without regard to the additional permissions.
353 
354    When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
355  remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
356  it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
357  removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
358  additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
359  for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
360 
361    Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
362  add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
363  that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
364 
365      a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
366      terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
367 
368      b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
369      author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
370      Notices displayed by works containing it; or
371 
372      c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
373      requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
374      reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
375 
376      d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
377      authors of the material; or
378 
379      e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
380      trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
381 
382      f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
383      material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
384      it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
385      any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
386      those licensors and authors.
387 
388    All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
389  restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
390  received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
391  governed by this License along with a term that is a further
392  restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
393  a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
394  License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
395  of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
396  not survive such relicensing or conveying.
397 
398    If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
399  must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
400  additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
401  where to find the applicable terms.
402 
403    Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
404  form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
405  the above requirements apply either way.
406 
407    8. Termination.
408 
409    You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
410  provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
411  modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
412  this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
413  paragraph of section 11).
414 
415    However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
416  license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
417  provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
418  finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
419  holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
420  prior to 60 days after the cessation.
421 
422    Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
423  reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
424  violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
425  received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
426  copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
427  your receipt of the notice.
428 
429    Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
430  licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
431  this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
432  reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
433  material under section 10.
434 
435    9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
436 
437    You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
438  run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
439  occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
440  to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
441  nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
442  modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
443  not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
444  covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
445 
446    10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
447 
448    Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
449  receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
450  propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
451  for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
452 
453    An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
454  organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
455  organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
456  work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
457  transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
458  licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
459  give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
460  Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
461  the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
462 
463    You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
464  rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
465  not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
466  rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
467  (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
468  any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
469  sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
470 
471    11. Patents.
472 
473    A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
474  License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
475  work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
476 
477    A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
478  owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
479  hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
480  by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
481  but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
482  consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
483  purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
484  patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
485  this License.
486 
487    Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
488  patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
489  make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
490  propagate the contents of its contributor version.
491 
492    In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
493  agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
494  (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
495  sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
496  party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
497  patent against the party.
498 
499    If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
500  and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
501  to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
502  publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
503  then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
504  available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
505  patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
506  consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
507  license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
508  actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
509  covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
510  in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
511  country that you have reason to believe are valid.
512 
513    If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
514  arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
515  covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
516  receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
517  or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
518  you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
519  work and works based on it.
520 
521    A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
522  the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
523  conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
524  specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
525  work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
526  in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
527  to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
528  the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
529  parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
530  patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
531  conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
532  for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
533  contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
534  or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
535 
536    Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
537  any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
538  otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
539 
540    12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
541 
542    If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
543  otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
544  excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
545  covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
546  License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
547  not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
548  to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
549  the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
550  License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
551 
552    13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
553 
554    Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
555  permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
556  under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
557  combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
558  License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
559  but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
560  section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
561  combination as such.
562 
563    14. Revised Versions of this License.
564 
565    The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
566  the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
567  be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
568  address new problems or concerns.
569 
570    Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
571  Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
572  Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
573  option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
574  version or of any later version published by the Free Software
575  Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
576  GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
577  by the Free Software Foundation.
578 
579    If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
580  versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
581  public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
582  to choose that version for the Program.
583 
584    Later license versions may give you additional or different
585  permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
586  author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
587  later version.
588 
589    15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
590 
591    THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
592  APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
593  HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
594  OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
595  THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
596  PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
597  IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
598  ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
599 
600    16. Limitation of Liability.
601 
602    IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
603  WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
604  THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
605  GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
606  USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
607  DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
608  PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
609  EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
610  SUCH DAMAGES.
611 
612    17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
613 
614    If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
615  above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
616  reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
617  an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
618  Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
619  copy of the Program in return for a fee.
620 
621                       END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
622 
623              How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
624 
625    If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
626  possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
627  free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
628 
629    To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
630  to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
631  state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
632  the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
633 
634      <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
635      Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
636 
637      This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
638      it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
639      the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
640      (at your option) any later version.
641 
642      This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
643      but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
644      MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
645      GNU General Public License for more details.
646 
647      You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
648      along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
649 
650  Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
651 
652    If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
653  notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
654 
655      <program> Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
656      This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
657      This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
658      under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
659 
660  The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
661  parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program's commands
662  might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
663 
664    You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
665  if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
666  For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
667  <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
668 
669    The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
670  into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you
671  may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
672  the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
673  Public License instead of this License. But first, please read
674  <http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html>.
