Version history for Perl distribution Software-License-OrLaterPack: v0.10.2 @ 2016-10-10 22:17 UTC - The preamble and instructions are integral parts of the GNU GPL and may not be omitted. v0.10.1 @ 2015-10-22 21:45 UTC - `aspell.en.pws` file renamed to `aspell-en.pws` to make `Test::Portability` happy. - Minor fix to make `Test::Synopsis` happy. - Short license note used in documentation. - Mercurial repository moved from FedoraPeople.org to NonGNU.Savannah.org. - Minor change in documentation: `attribute` term is used instead of `method` for all attribute readers. v0.10.0 @ 2015-10-03 09:01 UTC - Documentation updated. Added "DESCRIPTION" section to the manual, with two subsections "Program Name" and "Short License Notice". - `_name` method changed: "the" article dropped from returned value. Now `_name` returns "bare" license name, which is the same for "or later" license and for its base license, e. g. "GNU General Public License". - Introduced methods: `_abbr`, `abbr`, `base`, `program`, `Program`. - `_version` method retired, use `->base->version` instead. - **Incompatible change:** `notice` method takes program name from object, not from argument. Argument now is interpreted as requested notice variant. There are two variants: default (no argument) and `'short'`. Short notice is similar to the notice printed by the current GNU programs, e. g.: Copyright (C) YEAR HOLDER License ABBR: NAME URL This is free software: you are free to change and redistribute it. There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law. - Required Perl version lowered to 5.006. - Version style switched from old decimal to new dotted-decimal. 0.009 @ 2015-06-15 - `OrLaterPack.pm` is returned to the distribution. CPAN does not handle well distributions with no main module. In particular, distribution upgrade does not work. 0.008 @ 2015-06-14 - `OrLaterPack.pod` and distribution `README` now have `NAME`, `VERSION` and `AUTHOR` sections. - `bugtracker.web` resource is changed from SourceForge to `rt.cpan.org`. - All the small templates eliminated, files are generated from `dist.ini`. - Bug reporting changed to use `Dist::Zilla`'s `log` and `log_fatal` methods — it makes error messages more clear, especially error location more understandable. - Some more links added to documentation. 0.007 @ 2015-06-11 - Documentation moved to `doc/` directory, each chapter in separate file. The same files used to generate distribution COPYING and README, OrLaterPack.pod. Source COPYING is a symlink to `doc/14-copying.doc`. - More licenses added: GPL v1 and v2, LGPL v2.1 and 3.0. - All the `or_later.pm` modules now generated from the same template. - More test added: `MojibakeTests` (checks encoding), `CheckPrereqsIndexed` (checks all dependencies are available in CPAN). - Functional test expanded to cover added licenses. - Dummy module `OrLaterPack.pm` dropped, `OrLaterPack.pod` file introduced instead. - `manifest.txt` now describes all the source files (even those which are not copied to distribution). 0.006 @ 2015-04-29 - `_name` and `_version` methods introduced. The first returns plain license name (no version) with lowercase "article "the", the second return plain license version "3". - `notice` method overrides parent one: (1) our method has optional parameters — program name ("this program" by default), it is used in license notice text, (2) notice text is formatted with `Text::Wrap::fill`. - `AGPL_3::or_later` delegates most of the work to `GPL_3::or_later` to avoid code duplication. - I am studying CPAN features and polishing release process and materials. Added some info: where to get *real* source, how to report bugs, etc. 0.005 @ 2015-04-16 - Minor bug in POD fixed. - `dist.ini` and `weaver.ini` dropped from distribution. - License note in sources was incorrect, fixed. - Source `README` added, not fully completed yet. - Distribution `README` is also added. - SourceForge project created. - Dist meta info provided with resources: homepage and repository. 0.004 @ 2015-04-14 - `Changes` file format changed to meet CPAN requirements. - "Main" module added to make CPAN happy. - Studying `Dist::Zilla` — adding more release tests, etc. 0.003 @ 2015-04-12 - `Software-License-GPL_3-or_later` renamed to `Software-License-OrLaterPack`. - `AGPL_3::or_later` license added. - Documentation moved to `OrLaterPack.pod` file. - Functional test improved and expanded and now covers both licenses. 0.002 @ 2015-04-11 - `Module::Build::Tiny` used instead of `ExtUtils::MakeMaker`. - Functional test added. - `Test::Compile` test added. - Documentation added. 0.001 @ 2015-04-10 - Initial revision. No documentation, no tests, but `GPL_3::or_later` works and can be used.
