+Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
+license document, but changing it is not allowed.
+### <a name="preamble"></a>Preamble
+The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software
+and other kinds of works.
+The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to
+take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the
+GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
+share and change all versions of a program–to make sure it remains free
+software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
+GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
+any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to
+your programs, too.
+When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price.
+Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the
+freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if
+you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it,
+that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free
+programs, and that you know you can do these things.
+To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these
+rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have
+certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
+you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
+For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis
+or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same freedoms that
+you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
+source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
+Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1)
+assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License giving
+you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
+For the developers’ and authors’ protection, the GPL clearly explains
+that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users’ and
+authors’ sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
+changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
+authors of previous versions.
+Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
+modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
+can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of protecting
+users’ freedom to change the software. The systematic pattern of such
+abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to use, which is
+precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we have designed
+this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those products. If
+such problems arise substantially in other domains, we stand ready to
+extend this provision to those domains in future versions of the GPL, as
+needed to protect the freedom of users.
+Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
+States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
+software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
+avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
+make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that
+patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
+The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
+modification follow.
