Q: How can I tell if a license is a free software license, by Debian's

A: The process involves human judgement. The DFSG is an attempt to articulate
our criteria. But the DFSG is not a contract. This means that if you think
you've found a "loophole" in the DFSG then you don't quite understand how this
works. The DFSG is a potentially imperfect attempt to express what "freeness"
in software means to Debian. It is not something whose letter we argue about.
It is not a law. Rather, it is a set of guidelines.
