There are a great number of places in calc where code is commented out with lines staring in "//UNUSED".  Since 'git' is being used, there is no reason to keep old code like this in comments.

The patch is contributed under GPL3+ if that makes a difference.

Taking over.
Comment 4 Kohei Yoshida 2010-09-28 19:50:16 UTC
Checked into the calc repo.

The patch was applied as-is, except for one skipped hunk which accidentally modified a licensing header.

Thanks for the patch. :-)
Comment 5 Tor Lillqvist 2010-09-29 00:22:32 UTC
Sorry, contributions need to be LGPL3, not GPL3.

But does a patch that only *removes* lines actually introduce anything that the patch creator would hold copyright on? Interesting question, but I guess yes, as a whole it affects the work and thus introduces you as a copyright holder.

So if you indeed insist on using GPL3 and not LGPL3 for the patch, I am afraid it can't be accepted.
Comment 6 Kohei Yoshida 2010-09-29 04:09:01 UTC
Oh yeah, that's a very important point.

Justin, as Tor said, we cannot accept GPL3.  Could you confirm that your patch is contributed under LGPL3 ?  Please let us know ASAP, or else we'll have to revert your change.
Comment 7 Kohei Yoshida 2010-09-29 04:21:43 UTC
He re-submitted an identical (except for one hunk which I didn't apply) patch under LGPL3:


Problem solved.

There were still some of these comments (actually, a lot of them).  The most recent attachment should get rid of the last of them.

The file is contributed under LGPL3+.  I had the same question about simple deletions.  Sorry for the confusion.
Comment 9 Justin Malcolm 2010-09-29 09:57:01 UTC
Setting status to 'REOPENED' as not all such comments have been removed.
Comment 10 Kohei Yoshida 2010-09-29 11:17:02 UTC

Committed the last attached patch.  Thanks a lot.

This is a Calc issue, therefore changed the 'Component' field appropriately.
