DFSG claims BSD, not BSD 2/3-clause, is DFSG-free
during my ongoing NM process, I have been asked to review several
Debian documents and propose any changes I would like to see.
While, to put it bluntly, I think the Debian Constitution is written
somewhat sloppily, it's most likely not worth going through a GR to
get what amounts to janitorial work through.
Something that _can_ easily be changed (afaik) is that the DFSG states that
'The GPL, BSD, and Artistic licenses are examples of licenses that
we consider free.'
It's quite obvious that this refers to 2- and 3- clause BSD, not
4-clause BSD. Still, that's not what it says. Same as above, this is
mainly janitorial, but still valid.
As I honestly don't know where to take this, I decided to open this
can of worms here.
PS: If anyone's seriously interested in the barrel or container of
worms of "clean up the Debian Constitution a bit and see those changes
implemented", maybe we should do that in another thread.
PPS: Same as whitespace commits, this type or janitorial work can be
rather political or even religious. I do not intend to offend your
