This is Debian/GNU Linux's prepackaged version of the 'x3270' program.
`x3270' opens a telnet connection to an IBM mainframe host in an X window.  
'x3270' was written by Paul Mattes based on an earlier port by Jeff Sparkes.

This package was put together by Carey Evans <carey@debian.org> from
the sources at

    http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Peaks/7814/x3270-3119.tgz

based on work by Dirk Eddelbuettel <edd@debian.org>.

Modifications made by Carey Evans <carey@debian.org> to x3270 are as
follows:

 * Added more keys to the 5250 keymap.
 * Changed the interpreter paths in the example scripts.

These modifications fall under the same copyright as used by most of
the other authors:

     Modifications Copyright � 1998, 1999 by Carey Evans.

     Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software and

     granted, provided that the above copyright notice appear in all

     notice appear in supporting documentation.

--------------------

This is why x3270 is in non-free, not main:

 * All the licenses are normal, and used by standard Debian packages,
   except for the original Georgia Tech Research Corporation on the
   software and the Georgia Institute of Technology copyright on some
   of the fonts.

   Clarification is needed on what GTRC consider to be "public use."

   The license on the fonts doesn't mention permission to use the
   fonts.  Is this implied, and does it matter?

Copyrights on x3270 are a work in progress and any assistance in
clarifying them would be appreciated.

The 5250 emulation code carries one more copyright:

What this means is that you (whomever you may be) may use x3270 3.1 for
whatever purpose you desire, and the only restriction is that you include
the above notices in each copy or derivative work you distribute.

x3270 3.0.x comes from several sources:

                                   3270tool
                                      |

                                                               V
                                                         [you are here]

The original work was 3270tool, a 3270 emulator for Suntools (Sun's original
proprietary windowing environment). This was developed by Robert Viduya at
Georgia Tech, and is why GTRC's copyright notice is first.

3270tool was then ported to X11R4 by Jeff Sparkes, and given the name
"x3270." This is why his name is second.

x3270 3.1 started with Jeff's x3270 version 1.2, and was made very much
bigger by Paul Mattes, with contributions and suggestions by a number of
users from the net. This is the version you are looking at right now.

Given the spirit of creativity on the net (and the availability of source
code) there are a number of other versions of x3270, all based on Jeff's
code, most notably v1.2-cutpaste-iso8859-1 and v2.65. x3270 3.1 is a
separate line of development from these other versions. Patches for those
versions do not apply to x3270 3.1, and some of the features found in those
versions may not be in 3.1. X resource definitions are generally not
compatible, either.

In addition, the "About x3270" dialog states:

    File transfer code Copyright � 1995 by Dick Altenbern.

with the same copyright as Paul Mattes and Jeff Sparkes.
