Well, back than I wrote . Sorry, seems I forgot to CC you on that mail.
FTP team came to the conclusion, that it is possible to distribute
packages using the waf binaries. They "just" don't satisfy the DFSG.
That's all the FTP team has to decide.
So it's up to the SRMs to decide, whether they should be fixed in
Squeeze or may be tagged squeeze-ignore. (I now agree that tagging them
squeeze-ignore would be a better solution than tagging them wheezy sid.)
IMHO it would be okay to ignore them in squeeze, but that's not my
decision to take.
