It's up to committer, and his/her judgement about where my modification is inserted to in the LEGAL file.

# Summary

LEGAL file is used to describe the licenses and the files that Ruby license does not cover.

Below Japanese archive is the old discussion in 2001 about the LEGAL file.
This said "please tell me if there is lacked or wrong information (about the license)."
So, I would like to report lacked license that are not within LEGAL file.

I would like to include all the license information within LEGAL file, except Ruby license (COPYING file covers this), because it is easier for me to follow up the license information. I am managing the package of the Ruby on Fedora Project.

# Files that are not within LEGAL file

## enc/trans/**/*.src


```
$ ls enc/trans/**/*.src | xargs grep -i copyright
enc/trans/GB/GB12345%UCS.src:#	Copyright (c) 1991-1994 Unicode, Inc.  All Rights reserved.
...
```


enc/trans/GB/*.src files are not covered within the file.

It must be Unicode or Unicode Character Database (UCD) license.

This issue is also related on https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/11844 .


## Additional files with CC0 (Public Domain license)

```
find -name "*.[ch]" -o -name "*.src" \
  | xargs grep -ri 'public[ -]domain' \
  | awk -F ':' '{ print $1 }' \
  | sort | uniq
```

Below files are not included within the LEGAL file.

```
ext/date/date_strftime.c
ext/sdbm/_sdbm.c
ext/sdbm/sdbm.h
include/ruby/st.h
missing/acosh.c
strftime.c
```

## lib/rdoc/generator/template/darkfish/css/fonts.css

It must be SIL license.


## ext/json/generator/generator.c

It must be Unicode or Unicode Character Database (UCD) license.

Thanks.
