exactly is Open Source Ware?
term "open source" means differnet things
to different people. Some open-source projects allow
anyone to alter and redistribute their programs, while
others share their code but ask people not to change
or redistribute it. Leaders of each project decide what
is allowed, usually setting up a license whose terms
users must follow if they want to use the software.
But there are almost as many types of licenses as there
are open-source projects, which can cause confustion
about what is allowed with each software package."
Standards for open-source licenses are a key need. -
