The problem with SKIP codes has been fixed in kanjidic 2003.07.21-1.
See the changelog:
kanjidic (2003.07.21-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
* New license that allows modifications and free redistribution: now in main
* New maintainer. Closes: #192690
* removed SKIP codes. Closes: #182652
* added debian/download to build a new source tar and remove SKIP codes
Moreover, Jim Breen, the author of kanjidic, explained me that Jack Halpern's
SKIP copyright statement is a "dead letter" (and kanjidic file has been used by
freeware and shareware for a decade without Jack Halpern making any noise about
it). He'll also see if Jack Halpern will agree to a more sensible copyright
statement for the SKIP codes.
Anyway SKIP codes are not distributed anymore with the latest upload of
kanjidic, so I close this bug.
