Not sure if this is the procedure for adding formulae to Homebrew, but it seems like a reasonable thing to do. Apologies in advance if this isn't how you folk run the project.

Also, thanks a million for building/maintaining this. Words cannot describe how little I miss MacPorts.


Thanks for the submission. What is this software's license?


Ah! It's academic software, meaning it is (alas) proprietary. From the documentation:

The CLUTO package is copyrighted by the Regents of the University of Minnesota. It can be freely used for educational and research purposes by non-profit institutions and US government agencies only. Other organizations are allowed to use CLUTO only for evaluation purposes, and any further uses will require prior approval. The software may not be sold or redistributed without prior approval. One may make copies of the software for their use provided that the copies, are not sold or distributed, are used under the same terms and conditions.
As unestablished research software, this code is provided on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied. The downloading, or executing any part of this software constitutes an implicit agreement to these terms. These terms and conditions are subject to change at any time without prior notice.

It did not occur to me that this would be a concern, given the way in which Homebrew is used to distribute (or rather, not) packages. I'm assuming that this licence clashes rather horribly with whatever policies you guys have in place. Alas!


The good news is that the Homebrew-ALT repo has a place for this:


Cool, I'll submit it over there.
