    7 Developers, that register a new hack ensure, that each hack has a valid license attached to it, and that code changes match the respective license. In absence of an explicit license we assume, that the license of the underlying framework applies, always meaning the latest t:TracLicense. However this is only meant as a starting-point, if such license-free code is encountered the first time, especially with older contributions predating this set of rules.
