|0005616||OCaml||OCaml documentation||public||2012-05-16 16:54||2012-05-24 18:27|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||4.00.0+dev|
|Summary||0005616: Please claritfy license and copyright holders of ocamlbuild/manual/*|
It seems that files shipped under "ocamlbuild/manual/" do not have a
declared copyright owner or a license. Admittedly, manual.tex's has a
list of authors but they are not the copyright holders (it is not said
explicitly). So we cannot redistribute them or do anything useful with
The LICENSE file says the following:
> and "the Compiler" refers to all files marked "Copyright INRIA" in the
> following directories and their sub-directories:
> asmcomp, boot, build, bytecomp, debugger, driver, lex, man,
> ocamlbuild, ocamldoc, parsing, testsuite, tools, toplevel, typing,
> utils, yacc
but affected files are not maked "Copyright INRIA" and thus not
covered by the LICENSE file.
Can you please clarify their license and copyright holders?
Besides, it would nice to also provide the ocamlbuild's manual
(generated .pdf and .html) in
http://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-$ver/ [^] since it looks like a
canonical location for ocaml documentation.

Starting with 4.00, ocamlbuild's manual is part of the OCaml reference manual and covered by the copyrights and licence for said manual. So, I "clarified" the status of the files you mention by just removing them from the source distribution of OCaml.
