Enterprise Library 4.0 原始碼發佈為微軟公眾授權(Ms-PL)

今天從 InfoQ 得知微軟近日將 Enterprise Library 4.0 的開放原始碼授權變更為微軟公眾授權 (Microsoft Public License) (Ms-PL),有興趣的人可以到 CodePlexpatterns & practices – Enterprise Library 下載。

今天因為颱風天也無法出門,也就也花了些時間研究了一下 Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL) 授權條款,原來 Ms-PL 是 OSI (自由軟體組織) 所核准過的授權條款,不過上網怎麼找都找不太到中文的說明,索性就自己翻譯一下了,但還是有些地方看不是很明白,希望標紅字的部分可以請各位看倌指導。

以下都是以我自行理解後翻譯而成,僅供參考,本人不保證所有中文翻譯能完整或精確表達原文的意思,翻得不好請不要見怪,歡迎多多指教。
