Starshatter:TGS License
Right, I have a technical question if anyone is able to answer:

What is the license for SS:TGS?

...Can't find the source at the moment, but as best as I can figure, it was released under some flavor of the BSD license. Does anyone have confirmation of this, or alternately, a rebuttal?

Well, depends on what Milo says about it, I guess.

On that note, he has been in contact and has graciously changed the licensing on the source code release so that it is now under a variant of the 3-clause BSD license, which is extremely good news.

It looks like later forks of the original source have the new copyright:

Re: Starshatter:TGS License
Awesome, thanks crossboneisland!

In any sense, the license reference I first found was on some sort of placeholder reference in the remnants of Google Code. Again, can't find it right now and it's no longer a big deal because:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_licenses

Indeed, it's BSD 2.0 / 3-clause license

As far as I can tell, that's super-awesome. I'm no license guru, so I can't tell the pros and cons of this, but in general it's only good news. :D
