Issue #10952 has been updated by Zachary Scott.


Can we just add it to the gemspec?

----------------------------------------
Bug #10952: Clarify BigDecimal license
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10952#change-51942

* Author: Vit Ondruch
* Status: Assigned
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: Kenta Murata
* ruby -v: trunk
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
The README [1] says:

~~~
You can redistribute it and/or modify it under either the terms of the GPL
(see COPYING file), or the conditions below:
~~~

So it is GPL or Ruby license. Nevertheless, the file headers [2, 3] says something different while referring back to the README.:

~~~
* You may distribute under the terms of either the GNU General Public
* License or the Artistic License, as specified in the README file
* of this BigDecimal distribution.
~~~

Could you please clarify the licenses?
