KDE in Debian: suggestion for resolution

	Can we have a debian maintainer maintain KDE packages for KDE for
distribution  by KDE and _not_ by any debian ftp sites, or CD's.
	The maintainer (perhaps S. Kulow) can make it clear that he is not
acting as part of debian.

	Packages are available.
	KDE takes responsibility for legal problems, not debian.
	KDE loses the benefit of the BTS, but that is not too high a
price, I think.

I'd suggest saying that it is for protection from legal prosecution and
leave it at that.  Without the faulty license, KDE would just be another
piece of non-free software.
