      portions thereof), and not to any greater extent that may be necessary to
      Utilize further Modifications or combinations.

3. Distribution Obligations.
    3.1. Application of License.
    The Modifications which You create or to which You contribute are governed by the
    terms of this License, including without limitation Section 2.2. The Source Code
    version of Covered Code may be distributed only under the terms of this License or a
    future version of this License released under Section 6.1, and You must include a
    copy of this License with every copy of the Source Code You distribute. You may not
    offer or impose any terms on any Source Code version that alters or restricts the
    applicable version of this License or the recipients' rights hereunder. However, You
    may include an additional document offering the additional rights described in
    Section 3.5.

    3.2. Availability of Source Code.
    Any Modification which You create or to which You contribute must be made
    available, prior to any use, except for internal development and practice, in Source
    Code form under the terms of this License either on the same media as an
    Executable version or via an accepted Electronic Distribution Mechanism to anyone
    to whom you made an Executable version available; and if made available via
    Electronic Distribution Mechanism, must remain available for at least twelve (12)
    months after the date it initially became available, or at least six (6) months after a
    subsequent version of that particular Modification has been made available to such
    recipients. You shall notify the Initial Developer of the Modification and the location of
    the Source Code via the contact means provided for in the Developer Specific
    license. Initial Developer will be acting as maintainer of the Source Code and may
    provide an Electronic Distribution mechanism for the Modification to be made
    available.

    3.3. Description of Modifications.
    You must cause all Covered Code to which you contribute to contain a file
    documenting the changes You made to create that Covered Code and the date of
    any change. You must include a prominent statement that the Modification is derived,
    directly or indirectly, from Original Code provided by the Initial Developer and
    including the name of the Initial Developer in (a) the Source Code, and (b) in any
    notice in an Executable version or related documentation in which You describe the
    origin or ownership of the Covered Code.

    3.4. Intellectual Property Matters

      (a) Third Party Claims.
      If You have knowledge that a party claims an intellectual property right in
      particular functionality or code (or its utilization under this License), you must
      include a text file with the source code distribution titled "LEGAL" which
      describes the claim and the party making the claim in sufficient detail that a
      recipient will know whom to contact. If you obtain such knowledge after You
      make Your Modification available as described in Section 3.2, You shall
      promptly modify the LEGAL file in all copies You make available thereafter
      and shall take other steps (such as notifying appropriate mailing lists or
      newsgroups) reasonably calculated to inform those who received the
      Covered Code that new knowledge has been obtained.

      (b) Representations.
      Contributor represents that, except as disclosed pursuant to Section 3.4(a)
      above, Contributor believes that Contributor's Modifications are Contributor's
      original creation(s) and/or Contributor has sufficient rights to grant the rights
      conveyed by this License.

    3.5. Required Notices.
    You must duplicate the notice in Exhibit A in each file of the Source Code, and this
    License in any documentation for the Source Code, where You describe recipients'
    rights relating to Covered Code. If You created one or more Modification(s), You may
    add your name as a Contributor to the notice described in Exhibit A. If it is not
    possible to put such notice in a particular Source Code file due to its structure, then
    you must include such notice in a location (such as a relevant directory file) where a
    user would be likely to look for such a notice. You may choose to offer, and to charge
    a fee for, warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligations to one or more recipients
    of Covered Code. However, You may do so only on Your own behalf, and not on
    behalf of the Initial Developer or any Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear
    that any such warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligation is offered by You
    alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify the Initial Developer and every Contributor
    for any liability incurred by the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of
    warranty, support, indemnity or liability terms You offer.

    3.6. Distribution of Executable Versions.
    You may distribute Covered Code in Executable form only if the requirements of
    Section 3.1-3.5 have been met for that Covered Code, and if You include a notice
    stating that the Source Code version of the Covered Code is available under the
    terms of this License, including a description of how and where You have fulfilled the
    obligations of Section 3.2. The notice must be conspicuously included in any notice
    in an Executable version, related documentation or collateral in which You describe
    recipients' rights relating to the Covered Code. You may distribute the Executable
    version of Covered Code under a license of Your choice, which may contain terms
    different from this License, provided that You are in compliance with the terms of this
    License and that the license for the Executable version does not attempt to limit or
    alter the recipient's rights in the Source Code version from the rights set forth in this
    License. If You distribute the Executable version under a different license You must
    make it absolutely clear that any terms which differ from this License are offered by
    You alone, not by the Initial Developer or any Contributor. You hereby agree to
    indemnify the Initial Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by the
    Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any such terms You offer. If you
    distribute executable versions containing Covered Code, you must reproduce the
    notice in Exhibit B in the documentation and/or other materials provided with the
    product.

    3.7. Larger Works.
    You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Code with other code not
    governed by the terms of this License and distribute the Larger Work as a single
    product. In such a case, You must make sure the requirements of this License are
    fulfilled for the Covered Code.

4. Inability to Comply Due to Statute or Regulation.
    If it is impossible for You to comply with any of the terms of this License with respect
    to some or all of the Covered Code due to statute or regulation then You must: (a)
    comply with the terms of this License to the maximum extent possible; and (b) Cite
    all of the statutes or regulations that prohibit you from complying fully with this
    license. (c) describe the limitations and the code they affect. Such description must
    be included in the LEGAL file described in Section 3.4 and must be included with all
    distributions of the Source Code. Except to the extent prohibited by statute or
    regulation, such description must be sufficiently detailed for a recipient of ordinary
    skill to be able to understand it.
5. Application of this License.
    This License applies to code to which the Initial Developer has attached the notice in
    Exhibit A, and to related Covered Code.

6. Versions of the License.
    6.1. New Versions.
    License Author may publish revised and/or new versions of the License from time to
    time. Each version will be given a distinguishing version number and shall be
    submitted to opensource.org for certification.

    6.2. Effect of New Versions.
    Once Covered Code has been published under a particular version of the License,
    You may always continue to use it under the terms of that version. You may also
    choose to use such Covered Code under the terms of any subsequent version of the
    License published by Initial Developer. No one other than Initial Developer has the
    right to modify the terms applicable to Covered Code created under this License.

    6.3. Derivative Works.
    If you create or use a modified version of this License, except in association with the
    required Devloper Specific License described in section 6.4, (which you may only do
    in order to apply it to code which is not already Covered Code governed by this
    License), you must (a) rename Your license so that the phrases "Open", "OpenPL",
    "OPL" or any confusingly similar phrase do not appear anywhere in your license and
    (b) otherwise make it clear that your version of the license contains terms which differ
    from the Open Public License. (Filling in the name of the Initial Developer, Original
    Code or Contributor in the notice described in Exhibit A shall not of themselves be
    deemed to be modifications of this License.)

    6.4. Required Additional Developer Specific License
    This license is a union of the following two parts that should be found as text files in
    the same place (directory), in the order of preeminence:

    [1] A Developer specific license.

    [2] The contents of this file OPL.html, stating the general licensing policy of
    the software.

    In case of conflicting dispositions in the parts of this license, the terms of the lower-
    numbered part will always be superseded by the terms of the higher numbered part.


7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.
    COVERED CODE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS,
    WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
    INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED CODE
    IS FREE OF DEFECTS, MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE
    OR NON-INFRINGING. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
    PERFORMANCE OF THE COVERED CODE IS WITH YOU. SHOULD ANY
    COVERED CODE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY RESPECT, YOU (NOT THE
    INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME THE COST OF
    ANY NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. THIS DISCLAIMER
    OF WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE. NO
    USE OF ANY COVERED CODE IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER
    THIS DISCLAIMER.

8. TERMINATION.
    8.1 Termination upon Breach
    This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate automatically if You fail
    to comply with terms herein and fail to cure such breach within 30 days of becoming
    aware of the breach. All sublicenses to the Covered Code, which are properly
    granted, shall survive any termination of this License. Provisions that, by their nature,
    must remain in effect beyond the termination of this License shall survive.

    8.2. Termination Upon Litigation.
    If You initiate litigation by asserting a patent
    infringement claim (excluding declatory judgment actions) against Initial Developer or
    a Contributor (the Initial Developer or Contributor against whom You file such action
    is referred to as "Participant") alleging that:

      (a) such Participant's Contributor Version directly or indirectly infringes any
      patent, then any and all rights granted by such Participant to You under
      Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this License shall, upon 60 days notice from
      Participant terminate prospectively, unless if within 60 days after receipt of
      notice You either: (i) agree in writing to pay Participant a mutually agreeable
      reasonable royalty for Your past and future use of Modifications made by
      such Participant, or (ii) withdraw Your litigation claim with respect to the
      Contributor Version against such Participant. If within 60 days of notice, a
      reasonable royalty and payment arrangement are not mutually agreed upon
      in writing by the parties or the litigation claim is not withdrawn, the rights
      granted by Participant to You under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 automatically
      terminate at the expiration of the 60 day notice period specified above.

      (b) any software, hardware, or device, other than such Participant's
      Contributor Version, directly or indirectly infringes any patent, then any rights
      granted to You by such Participant under Sections 2.1(b) and 2.2(b) are
      revoked effective as of the date You first made, used, sold, distributed, or
      had made, Modifications made by that Participant.

    8.3. If You assert a patent infringement claim against Participant alleging that such
    Participant's Contributor Version directly or indirectly infringes any patent where such
    claim is resolved (such as by license or settlement) prior to the initiation of patent
    infringement litigation, then the reasonable value of the licenses granted by such
    Participant under Sections 2.1 or 2.2 shall be taken into account in determining the
    amount or value of any payment or license.

    8.4. In the event of termination under Sections 8.1 or 8.2 above, all end user license
    agreements (excluding distributors and resellers) which have been validly granted by
    You or any distributor hereunder prior to termination shall survive termination.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

    UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER
    TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL THE
    INITIAL DEVELOPER, ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OF
    COVERED CODE, OR ANY SUPPLIER OF ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE LIABLE
    TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL,
    OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT
    LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE,
    COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER
    COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE
    BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION
    OF LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL
    INJURY RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT
    APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO
    NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
    CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THAT EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY
    NOT APPLY TO YOU.

10. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS.

    The Covered Code is a "commercial item," as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. 2.101
    (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial computer software" and "commercial
    computer software documentation," as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212
    (Sept. 1995). Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through
    227.7202-4 (June 1995), all U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered Code with
    only those rights set forth herein.

    are responsible for damages arising, directly or indirectly, out of Your utilization of
    rights under this License, based on the number of copies of Covered Code you made
    available, the revenues you received from utilizing such rights, and other relevant
    factors. You agree to work with affected parties to distribute with Initial Developer
    responsibility on an equitable basis.
