Hi,I'm working on a new package, dpuser (ITP: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi- bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=472961).
It is mostly GPL-2, but contains bits and pieces of various freely available software. I would like to make sure dpuser is distributable.
Most licenses look DFSG-free to me, except the license for pgplot, which is currently in non-free (so I believe dpuser would have to go in non-free as well). IRAF used to be in contrib, although I can't make out why in was not in main.
The fundamental problem with PGPLOT (the most problematic of these licenses is this: PGPLOT is not public-domain software. However, it is freely available for non-commercial use.
I provide links to the licenses below and attach a cut-down version of the debian/copyright file, with only the non-standard licenses:
- SFL: http://legacy.imatix.com/html/sfl/sfl4.htm - Qwt: http://qwt.sourceforge.net/qwtlicense.html - IRAF: not available online, see attachement - zlib: http://desktop.google.com/en/copyrights.html#zlib- f2c: http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/f/f2c/ f2c_20050501-1/f2c.copyright
- pgplot: http://nova.umuc.edu/~black/pgpcw.html Thanks in advance for any advice, Regards, Thibaut.
