Licenses

Hi all. It looks like I have the honor to post the first "user post" to this form, so let's make it a really important issue:

Licesnses

I came across this subject when I tried to install Diamond the first time and the installer was not showing me the usual GPL/LGPL license stuff but telling me "WARINING: This program is protected by international copyright law and treaties." After this, I started looking around on the webpage but did not find any mention of a license.

I think this is important. You should be very up-front with the licenses. With CopperSpice it is pretty clear. As this is forked from a LGPL project, I assume that the licence will continue to be LGPL. But the other (sub-)projects Peppermill, Doxypress, Diamond and Kitchensink unclear I.e. the license is not visible before actually downloading any of these sources.

Thank you so much for posting and letting us know about the license issue. We have added a notation on the binary download page. I will also update the installer to show the license.

Just letting you know we planning an update of Diamond on July 15.
