Re: warsow: New version of warsow possibly non-distributable.


  Seems I've completely missed the point in my first post.

  This two points are contradictory: 3 says no one can distribute, 4
says it's fine to distribute if you don't touch anything. Moreover,
there are two different groups mentioned in here: the 'Chasseurs de
bots association' and the 'Warsow Team'. We'd better take this to
debian-legal. To me, it looks like a very badly-written license with
ambiguous clauses.
