I want to redistribute the compiled binaries and headers of OpenCV.
That means that I'm going to:
- Download some compiled release from OpenCV's Releases page.
- Create my own repository which will contain the downloaded binaries and headers.
- Add a couple of small scripts in addition to the unmodified binaries and headers.
Which license files and notes should I include into my repo if I want this repo to be available for any kinds of usage without any limitations excepting the requirement to mention me as the author in all dependent projects of this repo?
My current guess is that my repo should contain:
- The text of the MIT licence in the
- Notes about my scripts (which are a kind of very minor update for the original OpenCV library) and reference to the original repo mentioned as an author.
The main concern here is whether I need to copy
COPYRIGHT files from the OpenCV repo or I can just mention them in a free form in my
README.md? Are there any strict forms to format such licensing information?
P.S. Maybe I shouldn't worry about these licenses concerns in the open-source world at all...
