Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2006-02-05 20:01:39 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
Description: Embryo implements a C like scripting language used in various parts of the Enlightenment project, namely Edje. Embryo's scripting language is based on CompuPhase's Small language that was introduced in Dr Dobb's Journal in 1999. Embryo allows scripting capabilities in places that otherwise wouldn't support basic programming structures such as in Edje EDCs.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2006-02-12 23:30:03 UTC
I think you gave the link to the wrong srpm there, but I found the proper one
and gave a quick look.

Are you sure that license is MIT?  It seems to have an advertising clause that
is not in the stock MIT license as found at, and indeed seems closer to
the three clause BSD license (but I'm no expert).  Here is the clause:

The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in
all copies of the Software and its Copyright notices. In addition publicly
documented acknowledgment must be given that this software has been used if no
source code of this software is made available publicly. This includes
acknowledgments in either Copyright notices, Manuals, Publicity and Marketing
documents or any documentation provided with any product containing this
software. This License does not apply to any software that links to the
libraries provided by this software (statically or dynamically), but only to
the software provided.

Comment 2 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2006-02-23 11:36:51 UTC
The BSD license prevents the use of the name of <ORGANIZATION> from being used
to endorse or promote derived products, whereas this license requires
acknowledgement if the source code is not made available. While it isn't MIT per
se, it's certainly not BSD.
