Ok, but it's forbidden to publish those packages with another language than english. :) Sorry...

Where is in the license a direct prohibition to alter language files?

license.txt:
Quote
ii. A Modification, or a Mod, is defined as instructions, to be performed
manually or in an automated manner, that alter any part of this Package.
iii. A Modified Package is defined as this Package or a derivative of it with
one or more Modification applied to it.

it is allowed to distribute/copy the package or its modified version.
only a written consent should be expressed by Lewis Media to grant a modified package distribution.

either there is no direct prohibition to distribute the package with language files modified or i wasn't attentive enough reading the license agreement.

it would be nice to get the reference in the license where such a prohibition is declared.

You may not modify the license.  By using or downloading SMF, you agree to the license, without your modifications.

Without express written consent, you may not redistribute SMF, modified or not.

I have probably not understood some points.

SMF Team has opened source code of the original product
to attract the World intellectuals to the development process
and announced the product will be distributed freely.

These two facts will lead to the tendency
 of planet occupation by the product
  which.. being a dangerous moderation weapon,
   threaten each person of the planet
    and Humanity as a whole.

Why do Lewis Media assume that the Humanity would agree
 to live its last years under the conditions of Lewis Media ?

[Unknown], do personally you believe that
if to formulate a crime scheme of activities on a paper
 then the activities stop being a crime ?

I remind that you were against stealing..
Then you should not aprove the license
 which aproves stealing.

I'm sorry Gri, but I neither understand your verbage properly, nor agree.  Distributing SMF is stealing - from us.  I'm sorry if you feel differently.

If you do not agree to the license SMF is distributed under, it is your legal obligation not to use SMF.

~When anybody post the words "to Trekkie101"..
let Trekkie101 will be noticed immediately

Just Trekkie101

Gri has asked me to explain this feature a bit more,
I understood what he meant.
}

[Unknown],  {and the program understand it as "to [Unknown]"
                      if [Unknown] was not yet subscribed to this topic}

I can hardly imagine how to explain.. in words.

There are more than one layer in the problem of relations
 between the members of similar ~license~ agreements
 which are being announced in unilateral order
  and exclude or reject negative feedback
   as obligatory positive feature of the Universe.

I would like you to not mix the layers
 although they are closely intermixed.

----
Well.. will wait when _SMF program_
 will send a notice to "to Trekkie101" special topic
and the author of ~to Trekkie101~ magic words
 be able to discover Trekkie101
  among the subscribers to the topic
   (i.e. - its interested readers).

Gri the license states that you CAN NOT redistribute any files.
I do not know how to explain this to you in any other way.
You can not hand out give away or how ever you would like to put it.
So please just remove the files.

-JayBachatero

Maybe a lawyer knows how to explain ?
Is there a lawyer from the American part ?

I am not a lawyer yet but I will reply.
By using this software you agree to abide the license
that can be found here:

http://www.simplemachines.org/about/license.php

And it clearly states that you should have a written consent
to redistribute SMF. Also you don't have to be a lawyer
to comprehend that sentence and understand
that you cannot redistribute the files.

forsakenlad,
thank you for your reply.

Please download the turkish language packet
and try to abide the license agreement.

Was it successfully ?

Yes, downloading of language files isn't against the license. Why do you think that it should be?

Upload it to a hosting and publish the link.

I have not understood you. Say the same in other words.

Suppose I have asked you to upload turkish language packet
                                    and to allow me to in any way download it.

Do you see any obstacles ?

I mean that I want to speak with you in a set of languages
which we both understand the best.
If you speak turkish then I want to speak turkish with you.
Why can not you hand over your language packet to me ?

Vice versa - why I can not hand over the russian language packet
to you ?

There are no and could not be any obstacles.
Are there ?

Where have you read it ?
My native language is Toogrian.
I wonder why can not I hand over the Toogrian packet to you ?

Or maybe Simple Machines dictate which nations should speak on the planet
and which should not ?

Why do you insist me to speak in English ?

Quote from: SMF in install.php

// If we have english and some other language,
    use the other language.
    We Americans hate english.

In result I am being banned when try to speak English.
Let's better study each other language.
Let's exchange with language packets.

I will install your (Turkish) language packet at my forums.
You will install my (Toogrian) language packet at your forums.

Then we would speak at both side forums in any language.. even in English.

Can we ?
