Re: licence for Truecrypt
Foreword : I'm not part of the debian-legal team. I'm just taking care
of keeping the wiki clean.
I removed the "Truecrypt license" from the page because :
* This license is specific to a single package. A bug might me more
appropriate to track that. (IMHO).
* The state of that license is currently "undecided", it doesn't make
sense to put it on "DFSGLicenses", which is a reference page.
* Get yourself a proper wikiname : "foo" looks like a spammer account ;)

What about keeping the status of the license in :

If debian-legal find it appropriate, please undo my change.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
