DFSG audit of X-Oz license wanted
The X-Oz license that follows covers an autoconfiguration portion of
the XFree86 codebase that may be used in a future revision of the Debian
configuration scripts. If there could be some sort of determination of
whether or not this license is DFSG compliant, we can push ahead and
potentially use it. Commentary is appreciated. The original HTML text of
this license is located at http://www.x-oz.com/licenses.html for any who
