Bug#509546: www.debian.org: not suitable consultants list
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I saw http://www.debian.org/consultants/index.en.html#Japan, and was very
very surprised, because there is the name "nihonsoft".
They are slashdotted (in slashdot.jp) some years ago... why?
Because they made their own Linux distribution by just replacing copyright
holders name with using sed or something...OH NO.
And they would licensed their distribution under "GGPL", they say
"Greater Good Public License", most of the people think it violate GPL
(or other licenses), but they don't think so.
...it's cruel, but not just a joke. It's true.
They renamed their license as CGPL, http://cgpl.org/, but just change
They don't know about what is Free Software, what is copyright (or copyleft)
and license. They don't have ANY trust from people who cares about Linux and
lives in Japan. (If you don't believe, just ask any Japanese FLOSS developers!)
and others, http://www.fasp.tv/ stops their job (says in their page).
http://www.codwiz.com/ says only "meaningless" thing, and I'm working for
Debian 5 or 6 years (make and maintain packages, translate, join community
events), but didn't heared about them... it's so strange thing ;-)
Strongly, I proposed to remove them from this list.
And next time you will add consultants in Japan on that page,
please ask us - Japanese Debian Developer/Maintainer/Contributors.
