Q: license change for code component in RFCs
I've found the document that RFC copyright policy was changed in 2008,
so I want to share a bit about it.
RFC document itself is still non-DFSG-free one, but the **code** in RFC
after 2008-11-10 can be used under BSD-3-clause license as RFC 5378.
So, we can include _some code_ that was removed to make package
suitable to main. see http://trustee.ietf.org/license-info/
Maybe http://wiki.debian.org/NonFreeIETFDocuments should be updated, too.
And I wonder is there someone who have already asked them to release code
component in RFCs before RFC5378 under permissive license ago? I want
to include more MIBs to net-snmp.
# code = "code components" in RFC, not document itself
"ABNF definitions, XML Schemas, XML DTDs, XML RelaxNG definitions,
tables of values, MIBs, PIBs, ASN.1, and classical programming source code"
