Ah, I just read about the MIT ambiguous license bit in a doc somewhere. I'll get that cleared up.

As for the copyrightable files missing copyright / license notices, I thought I got them all and used the notice recommended but I'll go through with another pass to try to catch any I missed.

Last point: please use the exact form of license notice recommended in the GPL.

Please identify the licenses of your dependencies clearly: "MIT License" is ambiguous because MIT released software under many different licenses.  Also, please make sure that all copyrightable files in your tarball have valid copyright and license notices.

REVTTS dice is a javascript library for translating string representations of a die into a numeric result.

The library will be consumed by other projects within REVTTS, Random Encounter Virtual Tabletop Services, to provide TTRPG related services to others.

It is not the only javascript library for rolling dice. However, other libraries are either abandoned, complicated, or not as fast as I'd like.

Other Comments:

I've talked about this library, but I should explain more about Random Encounter Virtual Tabletop Services. It is a company I created to build services for those wishing to play Tabletop role-playing games virtually. Not just a virtual tabletop, but dice bots, integrations with communication platforms, tools to host a user's own services on their machine.

It's also a platform born out of frustration with current proprietary systems.

So, this library here is only a small piece of a larger ecosystem of tools I intend to release under GPL or GPLA.

Additionally, I am fairly new to the GNU world and its concepts of free software. Many of them I have held in some shape or form, but never in any concrete thought to paper way. So, I apologize if I've not got things set up right and I hope y'all would be willing to be patient with me as I learn.

In addition to the tgz file provided, you can also find the library on github: https://github.com/REVTTS/Dice
