S5: A Simple Standards-Based Slide Show System
Why is this project here on GitHub?
This project is a continuation of the S5 project created by Eric A. Meyer. The original project was placed into the public domain (see the license document for additional details), and has been unmaintained for a number of years.
Contributors are extremely welcome, but please make sure you read the license document carefully, and understand the implications. It is believed that one of the reasons this great project languished was because of the overhead involved in tracking public domain grants to the project, so we sincerely hope we've resolved that issue in a legal, ethical, and community-friendly way.
If you represent Eric A. Meyer, Kathryn S. Meyer, the Free Software Foundation, or the Electronic Frontier Foundation and think we're metaphorically smoking crack on our licensing, please contact us immediately. This project certainly believes its licensing to be in good faith, but there are people who are paid to know more about these things than we do. :)
