Re: Bug#596511: ITP: simon -- Open source speech recognition


One conclusion from earlier discussions about the Julius license on
debian-legal was that it was non-free:


The thread isn't completely clear to me what the exact problem is
As far as I can work out the ambiguous advertising clause is the problem (as well as possibly clause 5 but that seems to be open for discussion).

I agree that this clause is quite badly worded and already asked about it in the Julius forums (I am "bedahr"): http://julius.sourceforge.jp/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=644-

But I never got a reply.

Is Julius dynamically linked to Simon?  I wonder whether GPLv2 is
compatible with the Julius license.
Yes it is. The simon license contains a special exception to allow this.
