OSS licensing

There are so many different license models out there in the open-source community. I don’t know what all the fuss is about… I hate legal stuff, just ship it and ask for permissions later!

Nevertheless I have a license for my open source projects on github as well and it’s just there to say FU to everyone that actually cares about licensing. It’s called THE BEER-WARE LICENSE:

/*
 * ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * "THE BEER-WARE LICENSE" (Revision 42):
 * <phk@FreeBSD.ORG> wrote this file. As long as you retain this notice you
 * can do whatever you want with this stuff. If we meet some day, and you think
 * this stuff is worth it, you can buy me a beer in return Poul-Henning Kamp

THE (extended) BEER-WARE LICENSE

I modified it a little to come closer to my own needs (markdown + more beers!):

## License
"THE (extended) BEER-WARE LICENSE" (Revision 42.0815): [phoet](mailto:ps@nofail.de) contributed to this project.

As long as you retain this notice you can do whatever you want with this stuff.
If we meet some day, and you think this stuff is worth it, you can buy me some beers in return.

Cheers!
