Description Thomas Zander freebsd_committer 2014-02-11 19:30:00 UTC
The explanation of the different permissions in bsd.licenses.mk
reads quite counterintuitive and is probably often misinterpreted.

Fix: I propose to commit the attached diff to Mk/bsd.licenses.mk

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Read the sections "Available components for LICENSE_PERMS" and
"Notes about permissions" in bsd.licenses.mk.
