It doesn't matter who upstream is, as long as the software is DFSG-free , the maintainer is willing to do the work, and it would be useful for Debian users  it can be considered for Debian. Even if it is not DFSG-free, it might be allowed in non-free.  In practice, patent or trademark claims could make something not DFSG-free even if the copyright holder uses a good license. Or, (ala PINE) the copyright holder could have an odd view of a normally acceptable license.  If there's already a package that fills the same role, your package might not be considered useful for Debian users. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
