GNUS is "free"; this means that everyone is free to use it and free
to redistribute it on a free basis. GNUS is not in the public domain;
it is copyrighted and there are restrictions on its distribution, but
these restrictions are designed to permit everything that a good
cooperating citizen would want to do. What is not allowed is to try to
prevent others from further sharing any version of GNUS that they might
get from you. The precise conditions appears following this section.
The easiest way to get a copy of GNUS is from someone else who has
it. You need not ask for permission to do so, or tell any one else;
just copy it.
If you have access to the Internet, you can get the latest version of
GNUS from tut.cis.ohio-state.edu [188.8.131.52] using anonymous ftp.
You can also get it from osu-cis using anonymous uucp.
You may also receive GNUS when you buy a computer. Computer
manufacturers are free to distribute copies on the same terms that apply
to everyone else. These terms require them to give you the full
sources, including whatever changes they may have made, and to permit
you to redistribute the GNUS received from them under the usual terms of
the General Public License. In other words, the program must be free
for you when you get it, not just free for the manufacturer.
If you cannot get a copy in any of those ways, you can order one from
the author using electronic mail. For further information, write to:
If you cannot reach the author using these addresses, try the
following mailing list:
The list is intended to exchange useful information about GNUS, such as
bug reports, useful hooks, and extensions. Feel free to ask about the
