  10
+ Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
  11
+ of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
  12
+
  13
+			    Preamble
  14
+
  15
+  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
  16
+freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
  17
+License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
  18
+software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
  19
+General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
  20
+Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
  21
+using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
  22
+the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
  23
+your programs, too.
  24
+
  25
+  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
  26
+price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
  27
+have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
  28
+this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
  29
+if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
  30
+in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
  31
+
  32
+  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
  33
+anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
  34
+These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
  35
+distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
  36
+
  37
+  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
  38
+gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
  39
+you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
  40
+source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
  41
+rights.
  42
+
  43
+  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
  44
+(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
  45
+distribute and/or modify the software.
  46
+
  47
+  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
  48
+that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
  49
+software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
  50
+want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
  51
+that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
  52
+authors' reputations.
  53
+
  54
+  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
  55
+patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
  56
+program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
  57
+program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
  58
+patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
  59
+
  60
+  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
  61
+modification follow.
  62
+
  63
+		    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
  64
+   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
  65
+
  66
+  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
  67
+a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
  68
+under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
  69
+refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
  70
+means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
  71
+that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
  72
+either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
  73
+language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
  74
+the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
  75
+
  76
+Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
  77
+covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
  78
+running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
  79
+is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
  80
+Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
  81
+Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
  82
+
  83
+  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
  84
+source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
  85
+conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
  86
+copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
  87
+notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
  88
+and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
  89
+along with the Program.
  90
+
  91
+You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
  92
+you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
  93
+
  94
+  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
  95
+of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
  96
+distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
  97
+above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
  98
+
  99
+    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
  100
+    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
  101
+
  102
+    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
  103
+    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
  104
+    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
  105
+    parties under the terms of this License.
  106
+
  107
+    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
  108
+    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
  109
+    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
  110
+    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
  111
+    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
  112
+    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
  113
+    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
  114
+    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
  115
+    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
  116
+    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
  117
+
  118
+These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
  119
+identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
  120
+and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
  121
+themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
  122
+sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
  123
+distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
  124
+on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
  125
+this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
  126
+entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
  127
+
  128
+Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
  129
+your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
  130
+exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
  131
+collective works based on the Program.
  132
+
  133
+In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
  134
+with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
  135
+a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
  136
+the scope of this License.
  137
+
  138
+  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
  139
+under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
  140
+Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
  141
+
  142
+    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
  143
+    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
  144
+    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
  145
+
  146
+    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
  147
+    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
  148
+    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
  149
+    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
  150
+    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
  151
+    customarily used for software interchange; or,
  152
+
  153
+    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
  154
+    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
  155
+    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
  156
+    received the program in object code or executable form with such
  157
+    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
  158
+
  159
+The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
  160
+making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
  161
+code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
  162
+associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
  163
+control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
  164
+special exception, the source code distributed need not include
  165
+anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
  166
+form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
  167
+operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
  168
+itself accompanies the executable.
  169
+
  170
+If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
  171
+access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
  172
+access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
  173
+distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
  174
+compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
  175
+
  176
+  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
  177
+except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
  178
+otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
  179
+void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
  180
+However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
  181
+this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
  182
+parties remain in full compliance.
  183
+
  184
+  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
  185
+signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
  186
+distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
  187
+prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
  188
+modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
  189
+Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
  190
+all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
  191
+the Program or works based on it.
  192
+
  193
+  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
  194
+Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
  195
+original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
  196
+these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
  197
+restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
  198
+You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
  199
+this License.
  200
+
  201
+  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
  202
+infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
  203
+conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  204
+otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  205
+excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
  206
+distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
  207
+License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
  208
+may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
  209
+license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
  210
+all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
  211
+the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
  212
+refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
  213
+
  214
+If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
  215
+any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
  216
+apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
  217
+circumstances.
  218
+
  219
+It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
  220
+patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
  221
+such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
  222
+integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
  223
+implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
  224
+generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
  225
+through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
  226
+system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
  227
+to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
  228
+impose that choice.
  229
+
  230
+This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
  231
+be a consequence of the rest of this License.
  232
+
  233
+  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
  234
+certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
  235
+original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
  236
+may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
  237
+those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
  238
+countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
  239
+the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
  240
+
  241
+  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  242
+of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
  243
+be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
  244
+address new problems or concerns.
  245
+
  246
+Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
  247
+specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
  248
+later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
  249
+either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
  250
+Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
  251
+this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
  252
+Foundation.
  253
+
  254
+  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
  255
+programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
  256
+to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
  257
+Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
  258
+make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
  259
+of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
  260
+of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
  261
+
  262
+			    NO WARRANTY
  263
+
  264
+  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
  265
+FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
  266
+OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
  267
+PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
  268
+OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
  269
+MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
  270
+TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
  271
+PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
  272
+REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
  273
+
  274
+  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
  275
+WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
  276
+REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
  277
+INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
  278
+OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
  279
+TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
  280
+YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
  281
+PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
  282
+POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
  283
+
  284
+		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  285
+
  286
+	    How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  287
+
  288
+  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
  289
+possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
  290
+free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
  291
+
  292
+  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
  293
+to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
  294
+convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
  295
+the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
  296
+
  297
+    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  298
+    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
  299
+
  300
+    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
  301
+    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
  302
+    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
  303
+    (at your option) any later version.
  304
+
  305
+    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
  306
+    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
  307
+    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
  308
+    GNU General Public License for more details.
  309
+
  310
+    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
  311
+    along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
  312
+    Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA  02111-1307  USA
  313
+
  314
+
  315
+Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
  316
+
  317
+If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
  318
+when it starts in an interactive mode:
  319
+
  320
+    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
  321
+    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
  322
+    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
  323
+    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
  324
+
  325
+The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
  326
+parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
  327
+be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
  328
+mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
  329
+
  330
+You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
  331
+school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
  332
+necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:
  333
+
  334
+  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
  335
+  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

  340
+This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
  341
+proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
  342
+consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
  343
+library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
  344
+Public License instead of this License.

+GitX
  2
+---------------

+
  4
+# What is GitX?
  5
+
  6
+GitX is a gitk like clone written specifically for OS X Leopard and higher.
  7
+This means that it has a native interface and tries to integrate with the
  8
+operating system as good as possible. Examples of this are drag and drop
  9
+support and QuickLook support.
  10
+
  11
+
  12
+# Features
  13
+
  14
+The project is currently still in its starting phases. As time goes on,
  15
+hopefully more features will be added. Currently GitX supports the following:
  16
+
  17
+  * History browsing of your repository
  18
+  * See a nicely formatted diff of any revision
  19
+  * Search based on author or revision subject
  20
+  * Look at the complete tree of any revision
  21
+    * Preview any file in the tree in a text view or with QuickLook
  22
+    * Drag and drop files out of the tree view to copy them to your system
  23
+  
  24
+# License
  25
+
  26
+GitX is licensed under the GPL version 2. For more information, see the attached COPYING file.
  27
+
  28
+# Downloading
  29
+
  30
+GitX is currently hosted at GitHub. It's project page can be found at
  31
+http://github.com/pieter/gitx. Recent binary releases can be found at
  32
+http://github.com/pieter/gitx/wikis.
  33
+
  34
+If you wish to follow GitX development, you can download the source code
  35
+through git:
  36
+
  37
+  git clone git://github.com/pieter/gitx
  38
+
  39
+# Installation
  40
+
  41
+The easiest way to get GitX running is to download the binary release from the
  42
+wiki. If you wish to compile it yourself, you will need XCode 3.0 or later. As
  43
+GitX makes use of features available only on Leopard (such as garbage
  44
+collection), you will not be able to compile it on previous versions of OS X.
  45
+
  46
+To compile GitX, open the GitX.xcodeproj file and hit "Build".
