While you're at it: Lua uses a variant of the MIT license, not the

before. A discussion is somewhere in the mailing list archives.
I've decided to refer to it as the MIT license and link to:
Since Lua 5.0 (2003) we have adopted the MIT license, not a variant.
there is any difference, we should correct it. I just compared the
in that link with the Lua license, and did not see any difference.
you point out what it is?
He is probably referring to the difference between the MIT/Expat (used
Lua and on the OSI site) and the more popular MIT/X11 variant.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License#Various_versions for more
information about the difference.
