An Anonymous Coward writes: "I found this at SecurityPortal, here. I use IPF and I noticed last week in the snapshot the license changed: 'Yes, this means that derivitive or modified works are not permitted without the author's prior consent.' which was kind of bad since it violated OpenSource guidelines. Now the current snapshot of IPF says 'Redistribution is not permitted' which completely violates any Open Source style license. Does this mean IPF will have to fork an older version or someone needs to write a completely new version for all the BSD's/Solaris/etc?" The old license certainly doesn't read this way to me, but IPF author Darren Reed asserts this is only a clarification of the license, not an actual change. Another ssh vs. OpenSSH?
