Re: aiccu license
Thanks, Paul, for your insights. For your information, we have released AICCU today, using a BSD license as described. This should permanently take care of any legal issues you might have.

The transition from non-free to main will have to go through the
FTP Masters anyway, and that's a non-trivial delay generally.
I have heard from ftp masters in the past that they are willing to take this on (around 14/Aug/2006, Anthony Towns, via Philipp Kern). Perhaps it is still a possibility.

Yes, aiccu in Debian does not work. If releng does not approve of aiccu in main right now, then we would benefit also by an upload of 20070107 to non-free, so that at least the folks that want to use the Debian pool are in luck.
I've CC'd this to debian-release on the off-chance that it's in their
sights regarding freeze-breakage, but frankly, I think we're three
