Hi,

is it ok to adapt the d-p-l.org library reference style for own
projects?

I'd like to use it for the cairoD documentation.

 I removed all the Digital Mars copyright notices for now, should I add
 those back?

No. But one thing does concern me, the use of the D logo. Using it in the upper left corner implies that Cairo is an officially supported D library. May I suggest instead one of the other logos in the recent thread about logos in the D newsgroup? Or heck, you get to have the fun of creating a logo!

Not strictly relevant, but I'm working on the d-p-l.org design, including neatening the documentation. There's a thread on this. The current design is the work of David Gileadi, I am told, so presumably he owns the copyright on the front-end design? --bcaec52d4f8ddd906304a7db90ff Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable <div class=3D"gmail_quote">On Mon, Jul 11, 2011 at 7:03 PM, Johannes Pfau <= span dir=3D"ltr">&lt;<a href=3D"mailto:spam example.com" target=3D"_blank">= spam example.com</a>&gt;</span> wrote:<blockquote class=3D"gmail_quote" sty= le=3D"margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex"> is it ok to adapt the <a href=3D"http://d-p-l.org" target=3D"_blank">d-p-l.= org</a> library reference style for own<br> projects?<br></blockquote><div><br></div><div>Not strictly relevant, but I&= #39;m working on the <a href=3D"http://d-p-l.org" target=3D"_blank">d-p-l.o= rg</a> design, including neatening the documentation. =C2=A0There&#39;s a t= hread on this.</div> <div><br></div><div>The current design is the work of David Gileadi, I am t= old, so presumably he owns the copyright on the front-end design?</div> </div> --bcaec52d4f8ddd906304a7db90ff--

We never discussed this that I recall, but I hereby assign any copyright I might hold to Walter Bright and anyone else he designates. Since I'm not a lawyer, if anything else is needed I'd be happy to provide it. I may not need to do anything at all; the pages all state that the copyright belongs to Digital Mars.

I had never thought about it, but thanks! That removes any potential issue.

Ok, I removed it. I might add another one later, but for now I just want to have the api documentation working ;-) -- Johannes Pfau
