Switching to temporary RRPGE License
« on: October 19, 2014, 01:33:45 PM »
With new releases I will switch over to the Temporary RRPGE License.

The reasons behind this may be read in this topic.

This license is basically GPL, with a trademark term and permissions relating to switching to the finalized version of the RRPGE License included. So until the debates about licensing start up and settle, this basically mandates the use of GPL for any release (if you are interested in something else, please read the linked topic, and give some feedback).

The license text is as follows:
Code: [Select]
                               RRPGE LICENSE
                     Temporary version, 19 Oct 2014
