I think that the position, as well as the website, are crystal clear.

The ‘Quick Overview’ is not a license by itself, it simply tries to summarise
in two lines what copyleft means, and is not an additional restriction to the

who veto packages in Debian are our archive administrators, an none of them has
objected against libjs-extjs. In my opinion, just go ahead and it will be fine :)
