Bug#481491: debian-policy: please add LPPL v1.3a to Policy
in the beginning of 2003 it was discussed if the LPPL is DFSG
compatible. IIRC the result was the LPPL v1.3a^1, which is assumed to
be compatible to the DFSG. Hence we (the TeX Live maintainers) would
like to see that license mentioned in the policy.
Actually the # of packages under this license is rather medium:
hille@kloetzer:~ $ apt-cache search --names-only texlive|wc -l
which should make > 100, as there are a lot of other packages beside
TeX Live under this license.
Please consider to put that license into the policy.
