Subject Re: [FalconJX] d.ts files and parse/cross compile to AS
Date Sat, 30 May 2015 00:06:22 GMT
The file may not have a license header, but the repository has a license
file at its root:


The part of the header that says "Project: http://canvasjs.com/" is
referring to which project that this d.ts file should be used *with*. Not
that this d.ts file was borrowed from that project.

The d.ts files in DefinitelyTyped are all MIT licensed. It's the whole
point that this repository exists in the first place.
