+                     GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE

+                        Version 2, June 1991

+ 

+  Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.,

+  51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA

+  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies

+  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

+ 

+                             Preamble

+ 

+   The licenses for most software are designed to take away your

+ freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public

+ License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free

+ software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This

+ General Public License applies to most of the Free Software

+ Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to

+ using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by

+ the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to

+ your programs, too.

+ 

+   When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not

+ price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you

+ have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for

+ this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it

+ if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it

+ in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.

+ 

+   To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid

+ anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.

+ These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you

+ distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

+ 

+   For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether

+ gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that

+ you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the

+ source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their

+ rights.

+ 

+   We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and

+ (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,

+ distribute and/or modify the software.

+ 

+   Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain

+ that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free

+ software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we

+ want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so

+ that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original

+ authors' reputations.

+ 

+   Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software

+ patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free

+ program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the

+ program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any

+ patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.

+ 

+   The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and

+ modification follow.

+ 

+                     GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE

+    TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

+ 

+   0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains

+ a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed

+ under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,

+ refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"

+ means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:

+ that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,

+ either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another

+ language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in

+ the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".

+ 

+ Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not

+ covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of

+ running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program

+ is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the

+ Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).

+ Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.

+ 

+   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's

+ source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you

+ conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate

+ copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the

+ notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;

+ and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License

+ along with the Program.

+ 

+ You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and

+ you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

+ 

+   2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion

+ of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and

+ distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1

+ above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

+ 

+     a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices

+     stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.

+ 

+     b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in

+     whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any

+     part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third

+     parties under the terms of this License.

+ 

+     c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively

+     when run, you must cause it, when started running for such

+     interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an

+     announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a

+     notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide

+     a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under

+     these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this

+     License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but

+     does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on

+     the Program is not required to print an announcement.)

+ 

+ These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If

+ identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,

+ and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in

+ themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those

+ sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you

+ distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based

+ on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of

+ this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the

+ entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

+ 

+ Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest

+ your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to

+ exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or

+ collective works based on the Program.

+ 

+ In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program

+ with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of

+ a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under

+ the scope of this License.

+ 

+   3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,

+ under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of

+ Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

+ 

+     a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable

+     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections

+     1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

+ 

+     b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three

+     years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your

+     cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete

+     machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be

+     distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium

+     customarily used for software interchange; or,

+ 

+     c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer

+     to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is

+     allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you

+     received the program in object code or executable form with such

+     an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)

+ 

+ The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for

+ making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source

+ code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any

+ associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to

+ control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a

+ special exception, the source code distributed need not include

+ anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary

+ form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the

+ operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component

+ itself accompanies the executable.

+ 

+ If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering

+ access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent

+ access to copy the source code from the same place counts as

+ distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not

+ compelled to copy the source along with the object code.

+ 

+   4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program

+ except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt

+ otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is

+ void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.

+ However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under

+ this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such

+ parties remain in full compliance.

+ 

+   5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not

+ signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or

+ distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are

+ prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by

+ modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the

+ Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and

+ all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying

+ the Program or works based on it.

+ 

+   6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the

+ Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the

+ original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to

+ these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further

+ restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.

+ You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to

+ this License.

+ 

+   7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent

+ infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),

+ conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or

+ otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not

+ excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot

+ distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this

+ License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you

+ may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent

+ license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by

+ all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then

+ the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to

+ refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.

+ 

+ If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under

+ any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to

+ apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other

+ circumstances.

+ 

+ It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any

+ patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any

+ such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the

+ integrity of the free software distribution system, which is

+ implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made

+ generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed

+ through that system in reliance on consistent application of that

+ system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing

+ to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot

+ impose that choice.

+ 

+ This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to

+ be a consequence of the rest of this License.

+ 

+   8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in

+ certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the

+ original copyright holder who places the Program under this License

+ may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding

+ those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among

+ countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates

+ the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

+ 

+   9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions

+ of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will

+ be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to

+ address new problems or concerns.

+ 

+ Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program

+ specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any

+ later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions

+ either of that version or of any later version published by the Free

+ Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of

+ this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software

+ Foundation.

+ 

+   10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free

+ programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author

+ to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free

+ Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes

+ make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals

+ of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and

+ of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.

+ 

+                             NO WARRANTY

+ 

+   11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY

+ FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN

+ OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES

+ PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED

+ OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF

+ MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS

+ TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE

+ PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,

+ REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

+ 

+   12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING

+ WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR

+ REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,

+ INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING

+ OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED

+ TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY

+ YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER

+ PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE

+ POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

+ 

+                      END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

+ 

+             How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

+ 

+   If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest

+ possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it

+ free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

+ 

+   To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest

+ to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively

+ convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least

+ the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

+ 

+     <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>

+     Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>

+ 

+     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify

+     it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by

+     the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or

+     (at your option) any later version.

+ 

+     This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,

+     but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of

+     MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the

+     GNU General Public License for more details.

+ 

+     You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along

+     with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,

+     51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.

+ 

+ Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

+ 

+ If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this

+ when it starts in an interactive mode:

+ 

+     Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author

+     Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.

+     This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it

+     under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.

+ 

+ The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate

+ parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may

+ be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be

+ mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.

+ 

+ You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your

+ school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if

+ necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:

+ 

+   Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program

+   `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

+ 

+   <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989

+   Ty Coon, President of Vice

+ 

+ This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into

+ proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may

+ consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the

+ library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General

+ Public License instead of this License.

+ WaiverDB is a companion service to

+ against test results.

no initial comment

Oops, weird typo. I meant ResultDB, not Results.

I guess now I get to figure out how well Pagure copes with amended commits on a PR... :-)

Seems like Pagure can't handle pull requests against empty repos, so I will just push this commit directly...
