Status of BSD-like licences with advertisement clauses.

Dear all,

I have been told by two different developers that licences using the
4-clauses BSD licence as a template are free or non-free (one opinion
per develop per).

There is a software that I definitely want to see in Debian and it is
covered by such a licence. Can somebody remind me whether I would have to
get it sponsored in main or non-free?

This mail in not about starting a discussion on whether the licence
should be treated as main or non-free, but to tell me where to upload if
I do not want to see the package rejected. If you really would like to
discuss the subject, the original thread in debian-mentors is:


Also, if you are puzzled on what this discussion is about, the following
link may be of interest:


Have a nice day,
