Re: [epl-discuss] [Topic] Definition of Contributor

Definitely. We use the word "Contributor" differently than what the license suggests. We have Contributors of source that don't distribute the program. Or am I misinterpreting the word "distribute" which doesn't seem to be defined.

Subject: [epl-discuss] [Topic] Definition of Contributor

The EPL’s definition of Contributor is:


"Contributor" means any person or entity that distributes the Program.


This clearly works, but for the sake of clarity we may want to consider an alternate construction. For example, would it help readability if the defined term was “Distributor”?
