(Free)BSD in­side An­droid

Today I was look­ing into the Open­Source li­censes which are dis­played for An­droid [1] (2.3.4). There are sev­eral files which come with a BSD li­cense.

Dur­ing look­ing at it, I no­ticed that the libm has the copy­right of sev­eral FreeBSD [2] people [3]. I did not had an in-​deep look if this is be­cause they took the FreeBSD [4] libm, or if this is be­cause parts of the FreeBSD [5] libm where ad­op­ted by other BSD pro­jects [6].

What I no­ticed is, that some spe­cial char­ac­ters are not dis­played cor­rectly. For ex­ample the name Dag-​Erling Smør­grav looks mangled in the dis­play of the li­cense in­side the phone (I hope it is dis­played bet­ter in my blog). His name is not the only prob­lem case, there are also other char­ac­ters which are not rendered as ex­pec­ted.

This does not really look pro­fes­sional.

I don’t really blame them, it’s one of only a few files that still have my name in latin1. I’ve been think­ing about ask­ing them to fix it, but I have no idea who to con­tact.

“I hope it is dis­played bet­ter in my blog”.

Nope, not in an RSS reader (google reader)
it does not, see [111] .

I no­ticed this my­self. I do not know why this hap­pens. I use the de­fault Word­Press RSS fea­ture.
