== Licensing ==
Wayland is licensed with the intention to be usable anywhere is.
Originally, was covered under the MIT X11 license, but changed to
the MIT Expat license. Similarly, Wayland was covered initially as MIT
X11 licensed, but changed to the MIT Expat license, following in's
footsteps. Other than wording, the two licenses are substantially the
same, with the exeption of a no-advertising clause in X11 not included
in Expat.
New source code files should specify the MIT Expat license in their
boilerplate, as part of the copyright statement.
