Description Robert Edmonds 2014-02-05 20:58:57 CET
Hi,

Unbound appears to be licensed under a BSD-3-Clause license:

    http://unbound.nlnetlabs.nl/svn/trunk/LICENSE

Compare:

    http://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-3-Clause

However, the disclaimer in Unbound's LICENSE file uses the phrase "REGENTS OR CONTRIBUTORS", which looks like a copy-and-paste error (at least, I assume NLnet Labs has nothing to do with the Regents of the University of California). This phrase should probably be updated to read "COPYRIGHT HOLDER OR CONTRIBUTORS".

Hi Robert,

Yes this is a mistake, we'll fix it in upcoming releases, (and also for our other products).  Thanks for the notification,

Best regards, Wouter

Fixed in NSD, dnssec-trigger, ldns and unbound.
