No, not beeing Debian makes it only harder, not easier.
There may be stuff in it with "Yes, Debian is allowed to distribute it"
- which makes it undistributable for anyone else, except he gets the

Or stuff you aren't allowed to built and then distribute or whatever
else some idiot thought about for his license.

I dont care what/how they do it. Maybe they analyzed it, or just ignore
it and wait if someone plays law-games with them, i dont know.
I dont want law-games for me or for our mirrors or for the place where
we host the machine, thats not worth the stuff thats in there, so its
not added right away.
