LICENCE: Has author's copyright, only, and no licence, and thus is
distributable only directly by the copyright owner -- proprietary
software. The author (who is hostile to open-source software
licencing - see http://cr.yp.to/qmail/dist.html) seems to have
deliberately intended this unfortunate situation. My understanding
is that you have implied licence to retrieve the package directly
from the author's site, to write/apply/distribute patches, to compile
it, and to use it -- but not to redistribute it or works derived from
it. The author addresses this matter (in the abstract) at
COMMENTS: Still an alpha version, at this date. Provides ftp and
http file access, disallows writes to the public file area,
does its work without root authority. By Daniel J. Bernstein,
author of anonftpd (which, please see). Requires Bernstein's
ucspi-tcp and daemontools packages, which are available under
the same non-licence.
