Re: licence problems: what to do with kdeapps and kvt

(I'm replying to debian-devel, though this mail was private. Hope you don't
mind, Joey.)

The person who needs convincing is the person who wrote the original "xvt"
program that was modified into kvt and rxvt. So talking with the kde people
won't help (I've already informed them of the problem). 

So I need to get in touch with a "John Bovey", of the University of Kent.
Unfortunatly, I lack an email address. I'll try to trace him, though..

Anyway, here's the copyright again - if I do get in touch with John Bovey,
can someone who's knowledable legally tell me the smallest change that will
make this copyright compatable with the GPL?
