STRUCTURE

The regexp patterns follows the DefHash specification, and more specifically the structure of Regexp::Pattern, defining access to one pattern per DefHash object, as pat.

Additionally, (sub)patterns are available in plaintext form, as pat.alt.*.

SUBJECT

Each pattern targets one or more subjects, i.e. ways to directly or indirectly represent a license.

Beware that not all pattern objects fully cover all subjects.

trait

Distinguishing trait or feature expressed in licensing strings, e.g. an advertising clause or granting "...or any later version."

Coverage for this subject is currently rather weak.

name

Distinguishing name, e.g. usable in license grant.

grant

Text granting the license.

license

Text containing licensing terms.

Texts containing both license grant and licensing terms (e.g. BSD- and MIT-style licensing) may be classified as either subject grant or subject license. This may change, as needs for distinction is better understood.

SCOPE

Each pattern can process material within some scope, i.e. a certain sample size of the full subject.

As an example, https://codesearch.debian.net/ use line-based processing, where patterns spanning multiple lines are not applicable.

line

Pattern typically found within a single line. Typically this means less than 70 characters within scope.

sentence

Pattern matching within a sentence.

May span multiple lines, but not across multiple sentences. Typically this means no full-stop or colon within scope.

paragraph

Pattern matching distinguishing paragraph.

May span multiple sentences, but not multiple paragraphs. Typically this means no newline within scope.

section

Pattern matching distinguishing section.

May span multiple paragraphs, but not multiple sections. Typically this means blank line within scope.

multisection

Pattern may span multiple sections.

OBSOLETE OBJECTS

License objects obsoleted by improved coverage of other objects, and provided only as dummy objects.

TAGS

Pattern defhashes optionally includes tags, which may help in selecting multiple related patterns.

Tags are hierarchical, with : as separator, and may be extended without notice. Therefore take care to permit sub-parts when tag-matching, e.g. using a regex like /\Asome:tag(?:\z|:)/ .

  • family:bsd

  • family:cc

  • family:gpl

  • family:mit

  • family:zlib

    Pattern covers a license part of a family of licenses.

  • license:contains:grant:*

    License mentions a preferred form for granting the license.

    This implies that license is commonly granted by use of a different (typically far shorter) text.

    Fourth part (optional) is the key to corresponding license pattern, for a grant belonging to a different license (when omitted then a grant for same license is assumed).

  • license:contains:license:*

    License contains another license.

    Wildcard is the key to corresponding license pattern.

  • license:contains:name:*

    License mentions name of another license.

  • license:includes:license:*

    License references coverage of another license.

    Wildcard is the key to corresponding license pattern.

  • license:is:grant

    License is commonly granted by stating the whole license.

  • license:published:*

    License grant may include an "as published by..." reference.

    Third part is the key to corresponding trait pattern.

  • type:trait:publisher:*

    Pattern covers an "as published by ..." license grant phrase.

    Third part (optional) is the key to corresponding license pattern.

  • type:usage:*:*

    Pattern covers a specific usage of a license.

    Third part is the key of the corresponding non-usage-specific pattern.

    Fourth part is the key of the corresponding usage trait pattern.

  • type:combo

    Pattern covers a combination of multiple licenses.

  • type:group

    Pattern covers either of multiple licenses.

  • type:singleversion:*

    Pattern covers a specific version of a license.

    Third part is the key of the corresponding non-version-specific pattern.

  • type:trait

    Pattern covers a single trait occuring in licenses.

  • type:unversioned

    Pattern covers a license without versioning scheme.

  • type:versioned:decimal

    Pattern covers a license using decimal number versioning scheme.

EXAMPLES

Browse patterns

The "official" way to browse patterns is using App::RegexpPatternUtils:

    show-regexp-pattern-module --page-result -- License

Unfortunately, App::RegexpPatternUtils has a deep dependency tree. An alternative is to use Data::Printer and less:

    perl -CS -MRegexp::Pattern::License -MDDP -e 'p %Regexp::Pattern::License::RE, fulldump => 1, output => stdout' | less -RS
