6The license of the code was changed on 23-Jan-2010 in order to meet the
7Fedora Project's definition of Free Software, and therefore allow inclusion
8in Fedora, Red Hat Linux and CentOS. This also solves a long-standing
9incompatibility with the GNU Readline library that prevented us from
10distributing Box Backup binaries compiled against that library. You can
11review our discussions of the change in the mailing list archives at:
