Questions on how to handle this: [ftpmaster@debian.org: httperf_0.8-3_i386.changes REJECTED]



Below I have included the text rejecting my httperf package.  I am
taking over as maintainer and uploaded a new version that also closed a
couple of bugs and moved it from non-US to main.  If linking with libssl
is not permissible, should the version that is currently in Sarge be
slated for removal when 3.1r1 comes out?  If so, what do I need to do
ensure that it happens?

Also, I have emailed the upstream author and asked for him to relicense
or add an exception for linking to OpenSSL.  If that happens, then what
happens to the version in Sarge?  Does it need updating in 3.1r1 so the
the new license becomes part of the package in Sarge?

Hi Maintainer,

while looking at your package in NEW I discovered that it is
linking against openssl, itself beeing GPL licensed.
Sorry, but this doesnt work, the OpenSSL license and the GPL are
incompatible. For more information, and a link to give to your
upstream please visit
http://www.openssl.org/support/faq.html#LEGAL2 or/and
http://www.gnome.org/~markmc/openssl-and-the-gpl.html

After this is fixed feel free to upload your package again.

bye Joerg
