Just went to look at the license, which potential contributors need to agree to.

The license doc points to an external location for the license:

http://www.binpress.com/license/view/l/4a3f7d2617a07ee0f8bb71372d16c09b

Attempting to visit that link fails, as the web server there just automatically redirects back to itself in an endless loop. Eventually the server notices, and fails the request.

binpress_server_failure

Is it feasible to put the license in the repo instead, so failures of external things don't have a negative impact?

Just as a data point, going to the "binpress.com" server itself bounces to the www version, which shows this:

binpress_server_failure2

Checking if the domain itself has expired looks like it hasn't:

Maybe the CC of whoever namecheap is billing has expired or something and no-one's noticed?

I will try to do this as soon as possible but I need to find the exact license again. In the mean time, you can contribute to the project, just make sure that you do not re-distribute copies that are not forked from this repository on GitHub, and do not use commercially without permission from Cloud Sixteen.
