Contributions are welcome provided all contributions carry the MIT license.
DO NOT APPLY fixes copied from Mongoose to this project to prevent GPL tainting. Since 2013, CivetWeb and Mongoose are developed independently. By now the code base differs, so patches cannot be safely transfered in either direction.
Some guidelines can be found in docs/Contribution.md.
CivetWeb is based on the Mongoose project. The original author of Mongoose was Sergey Lyubka (Copyright (c) 2004-2013 Sergey Lyubka, MIT license).
However, in August 16, 2013, the license of Mongoose has been changed after writing and distributing the original code this project is based on. The license change and CivetWeb used to be mentioned on the Mongoose Wikipedia page as well, but it's getting deleted (and added again) there every now and then.
CivetWeb has been forked from the last MIT version of Mongoose. Since 2013, CivetWeb has seen many improvements from various authors (Copyright (c) 2013-2017 the CivetWeb developers, MIT license). A list of authors can be found in CREDITS.md.
Using the CivetWeb project ensures the MIT licenses terms are applied and GPL cannot be imposed on any of this code, as long as it is sourced from here. This code will remain free with the MIT license protection.
