On Tue, 28 Sep 2010 Vafa Khalighi submitted an update to the bidi package. Summary description: Support for bidirectional typesetting in plain TeX and LaTeX. License type: lppl Announcement text:
1- fixed reported bugs 2- included dtx source and TDS 3- There is a slight change of license: Copyright © 2007–2010 It may be distributed and/or modified under the LaTeX Project Public License, version 1.3c or higher (your choice). The latest version of this license is at: http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt This work is “author-maintained” (as per LPPL maintenance status) by Vafa Khalighi. In addition to the terms of LPPL any distributed version (unchanged or modified) of bidi has to keep the statement about the moral obligation for using bidi. In case of major changes where this would not be appropriate the author of the changed version should contact the copyright holder. Moral obligation for using bidi: ____________________________________ Users of bidi who wish to include or use bidi or a modified version in a proprietary and commercially market product are asked under certain conditions (see below) for the payment of a license fee. The size of this fee is to be determined, in each instance, by the commercial user, depending on his/her judgment of the value of bidi for his/her product. The conditions for this are as follows: The producer of a proprietary and commercially market product that involves typesetting using bidi is asked to determine the value of a license fee for using bidi if - the product is a document and the producer has decided to include bidi to typeset (parts of) the document or has directed the author of the document to include bidi (for example, by providing a class file to be used by the author) - the product is a LaTeX class or package that includes bidi There is no moral obligation in case - the product is a document but producer has not directed the author to include bidi (in that case the moral obligation lies with the author of the document) - the product does not involve typesetting, e.g., consists, for example, of distributing bidi and its documentation. - the product is not proprietary, i.e., is made available as free software itself (which doesn't prohibit its commercial marketing) - bidi is used for non-commercial purposes Determinating a license fee might result in a license fee of zero (i.e., no payment) in case a producer has determined that the use of bidi has no enhancing effect on the product. This is a plausible scenario, i.e., in the above two cases the producer is only asked to evaluate the value of bidi for the product not for the payment of a license fee per se (which might or might not follow from this evaluation). The license fee, if any, can be payed to the author of the program who can be contacted at vafakhlgh at gmail.com
