If you're a first-time committer, add yourself to the above list. This is not just for legal reasons, but also to keep an overview of all those nicknames.

For some authors, the full names and/or e-mail addresses are unknown. They have been marked by "?". Luckily, those author's contributions are only small typo fixes, so no copyright concerns should arise from this. If your info is missing, wrong, or you want it to be removed for whatever reason, please contact us.

A full list of all openage authors ("contributors") can also be determined from the VCS, e.g. via git shortlog -sne, or conveniently looked up on the GitHub web interface.

Details on individual authorships of files can be obtained via the VCS, e.g. via git blame, or the GitHub web interface.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License Version 3 for more details.

If you wish to include a file from openage in your project, make sure to include all required legal info. The easiest way to do this would probably be to include a copy of this file (, and to leave the file's copyright header untouched.

Per-file license header guidelines:

In addition to this file, to prevent legal caveats, every source file must include a header.

openage-native source files, that is, files that were created by the openage authors, require the following one-line header, preferably in the first line, as a comment:

Copyright 20XX-20YY the openage authors. See for legal info.

20XX is the year when the file was created, and 20YY is the year when the file was last edited. When editing a file, make sure the last-modification year is still correct.

3rd-party source files, that is, files that were taken from other open- source projects, require the following, longer header:

This file was ((taken|adapted)|contains (data|code)) from $PROJECT,
Copyright 1337-2013 Your Mom.
It's licensed under the terms of the 3-clause BSD license.
< any amount of lines of further legal information required by $PROJECT,
  such as a reference to a copy of the $PROJECT's README or AUTHORS file >
< if third-party files from more than the one project were used in this
  file, copy the above any number of times >
(Modifications|Other (data|code)|Everything else) Copyright 2014-2014 the openage authors.
See for further legal info.

For even more details, see the regular expressions.

In addition to the openage header, the file's original license header should be retained if in doubt.

The "license" line is required only if the file is not licensed as "GPLv3 or higher".

Authors of 3rd-party files should generally not be entered in the "openage authors" list.

All 3rd-party files must be included in the following list:

List of all 3rd-party files in openage:

From cabextract/libmspack (LGPL 2.0)

  • libopenage/util/compress/lzxd.cpp
  • doc/code/lzx_compression_info

cmake modules (3-clause BSD license)

  • buildsystem/modules/FindSDL2.cmake (taken from openmw)
  • buildsystem/modules/FindGPerfTools.cmake (taken from VAST)
  • buildsystem/modules/FindOpusfile.cmake (taken from Unvanquished)


Notes about this file:

I (mic_e) am not a lawyer. This is a free software project, we're doing this for fun. People convinced me that this legal shit must be done, so I did it, even though I'd rather have spent the time on useful parts of the project. If you see any legal issues, feel free to contact me.

I, personally, despise in-sourcefile legal text blocks. They're a pest, and unlike many others, I don't simply accept them because "that is what everybody does". Thus, I worked out the minimal 1-line text above, which should be free of legal caveats, and a reasonable compromise. I'd be happy to see it used in other projects; you're free to use this file ( as a template for your project's legal documentation.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
