[...] Out Of Order [...] should be provided in the
same packagey bundle as this text file. Or vice versa, depending on point
of view. My point is this: Out Of Order is a comedy sci-fi adventure game,
set somewhere in some time period, featuring a guy in silly slippers and
written originally for Windows. Or, rather, it was originally written for
the freeware SLUDGE adventure game engine back in the day when there was
only a Windows version. However, the times are very much a-changin' and
the engine has since been ported to other platforms. Hooray for people
with more time on their hands than myself! I admire and adore them all.
As should you, because without them you'd not be able to play this fine
game on your non-Windows machine. Hang on, was that actually my point?
No, wait. THIS was my point: the initial distribution of Out Of Order
contained the Windows engine. But I hereby give permission for you to
possess a copy of the data file and a copy of the engine for another
operating system of your choosing and experience the joys of the former
via the modern miracle of the latter. But please - don't charge for it.
And don't break the package apart and distribute bits of it individually.
And don't try to reverse engineer it. And don't prod and poke at it with a
HEX editor to make the characters say rude things about people you know,
or to make it look like you wrote it. Just play it and love it and get in
a grump with it when you can't get past some part of it. [...]

The license text is from an email sent from email@example.com to
firstname.lastname@example.org on 28 June 2010. While it does not explicitly
mention redistribution, the same mail also contained the following:
"Sore, by all means make the existing OOO data file available for Linux
- with the engine if that's what you're suggesting. I must admit, despite
having used Linux on and off for over 10 years, I've never packaged
anything up for it for distribution so don't really have that much of a
clue about what's involved. But yeah, go for it. The data file's freely
distributable at the moment as part of the installer... so I guess there's
no harm whatsoever in make it available outside of it."
