stub license/copyright

Postby savage » Mon Mar 31, 2014 8:44 pm

I have taken the stubs code from Appendix B.1 of the specifications document for use in a project that intends to use OpenMP, but may be run on systems where that is not available (notably using clang on Mac OS X). If we make our code public, what would be an appropriate license/copyright statement to place in the stubs header taken from the specs doc?

The rules are:
Permission to copy without fee all or part of this material is granted,
provided the OpenMP Architecture Review Board copyright notice and
the title of this document appear. Notice is given that copying is by
permission of OpenMP Architecture Review Board

So the text depends upon the version of the API that you are using. If the compiler is a OpenMP 3.1 compiler, the text would be:

OpenMP Application Program Interface
Version 3.1 July 2011
Copyright © 1997-2011 OpenMP Architecture Review Board.

You are also allowed to use the OpenMP trademark in your documentation, provided you mention the following text:
"The OpenMP name is a registered trademark of the OpenMP Architecture Review Board."
and you also follow the OpenMP trademark by a registered trademark symbol (®), or mark, at its first use and first prominent use in a document.
