Any references to the GPL are vestigial. Hopefully the license declaration at http://sqlline.sourceforge.net/#license is sufficiently authoritative in this regard. " To me, this seems a reasonable answer so I've stripped wrong LICENCE file from orig.tar.gz. I've reuploaded a new version on mentors.debian.net : http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/sqlline/sqlline_1.0.2-1.dsc Regards, -- Damien Raude-Morvan / www.drazzib.com
