Dear all, the recent discussion about 'Firebird being in main' caused even more confusion on my side, as the sites ,  (which I consider the debian-official statement wrt. which license is DFSG compliant) do not list the MPL as a DFSG conform license but as DFSG-incompatible . Also the conclusion drawn in  and  seem to contradict. More generally, as I understand the ten items that lead to the OSI open source definition  are based on the DFSG. Now I wonder which extra requirements the DFSG (suddenly?) include such that certain open source projects choosing a particular OSI license cannot enter debian main. On the other hand I am quite unhappy that more and more conflicting open source licenses seem to appear making code exchange problematic :-( Anyway I am asking as I wanted to package COIN-OR ( http://www.coin-or.org/ ) and as most of the packages are CPL licensed and the CPL is listed as 'status unsettled' in  and now suddenly the MPL seems OK  I am hoping the the CPL and all other OSI based licenses are too.
