I have just finished porting diction(1) and style(1) from 2.11BSD

and 32V UNIX releases.
I asked to the people of the NetBSD Foundation about the possibility
of adding those commands to the base system (as a part of the tarball
with documentation tools) but they think that it is not possible,
as a consequence of a licensing issue. I supposed that all the
software provided in the 2.11BSD was under a BSD license, but it
looks like 2.11BSD is a closed source release.
That's not correct any more. Who were you talking to at the NetBSD
Can someone, please, helping me on this matter? What
should I do?
Should I just drop this software?
We discussed the Caldera release of "ancient UNIX" on this mailing
list recently. Caldera (now SCO again) was supposed to make some kind
of official statement, but it's taking its time.
