I've been on the list for <mumble> years but can't say I recall it. Is this
list even archived?

Just says you can do anything except make money from it. Yeah, it's not
in legalese, but I think we all know what it means. I don't think Mark is
going to take anyone to court over it. I don't see why you couldn't use it
to debug commercial projects - to me it clearly says you can't use the _code_
to make money.

}It e.g. also doesn't allow it to put it on compilation cd roms, making

Not necessarily, if you're charging for the media or the other software

}I'm not at all attached to the GPL for this, just would like one of the

}and spell out the user's rights clearly. GPL seems fitting though. 

The existing one is neither GPL nor BSD is it? In fact it's similar to one I
used all those many years ago for clam (c1988-9). Any Minix fans on the list
remember that?
