Ralesk, I updated the FAQ again, how does it look now?

Q: How much does RPerl cost?

A: RPerl is 100% free-of-charge and is licensed under the same terms as Perl 5.18.0. This means you can use RPerl for free at home or at work, but you can't re-sell RPerl without the source code and you can't change the copyright terms.

    That sounds better to my layman eyes, yes :)

      Ralesk,

      I'm glad you approve! :-)

      Now that we've cleared that up, will you please make a pledge?

      Thank you in advance.

      Perling,
      ~ Will

    That is not what I would consider a reasonable summary of the options available under the Artistic license, which is basically aimed at not letting someone else distribute something (commercially or not) as "RPerl" that in fact has proprietary modifications.

      That is not what I would consider a reasonable summary of the options available under the Artistic license,....

      ysth, come on now , sure it is

      ysth, can you please provide your suggested wording so I can see what you mean, exactly?

        Abbreviating a license is very error prone. I would recommend you say less rather than more. What you do say makes me think you are only thinking of the GPL, not the Artistic license. You can modify and distribute RPerl without providing source code for your modifications, for instance, so long as you adhere to paragraphs 3c and 4c. You can even sell it, if aggregated as specified in paragraph 5.
