Re: Ian's DFSG2 would harm Debian and Free Software
Would this clause:
(h) Different name or version number for certain version
The licence may require the work to be distributed under a different
name or with a different version number under some circumstances
defined in the licence, provided that this doesn't interfere with
using the modified version as a replacement for the original.
especially the last phrase make TeX's Computer Modern fonts dsfg-nonfree?
Knuth refuses to allow this font to be changed. Yes, you can have other fonts
but you -cannot- distribute a changed font under this name. (his reasoning
being that any TeX anywhere should behave in -exactly- the same way, meaning
typeset pages are -exactly- alike regardless of platform. I would think this
would apply to all of TeX: no mods that would change the page given identical
Would this restriction on Knuth's part "interfere with using the modified
version as a replacement for the original"?
