In a certain open source project I'm planning to use, which is a developmental tool, there is no license included in the project, but the readme contains the following lines:
Terms and Conditions
This utility is free for any use, commercial or otherwise.
I'm not going to be copying any code from here into my project, since it is just something that assists you in version control. How do I interpret this, and is this safe to work with? I've already asked the author to add a real license, but I've received no reply for two months now, and the last commit was more than 5 years back.
