Declared license is GPL2 but, as Francesco pointed out, there is some
issue the makes it impossible to build a package.
In any case I updated the copyright file on launchpad to fix the GPL
version and I also added conditions of use from the home page.
Also I reported some note about this question at the bottom of


in order to track the problem

I checked it again but I can't find any license or copyright owner.
I found the author email and tried to contact him but no response yet.

Please find attached an updated version of 


I updated some description and also added all SW that currently have
packaging code on launchpad (asf-mapready, bestgui, gsdview,
libepr-api, polsarpro and sanphu also have binary packages for ubuntu
maverick, i386 and amd64, on the PPA).

Also have been added:
* roi_pac (licenses available at no charge for non-commercial use)
* orfeo (already in the DebianGIS Package Thermometer)
* eolisa (debian package available on the ESA website)
* nest (has a java installer)

I think all this SW are useful for people working with SAR and EO data
but probably many of them will never have a debian package (for
licensing reasons or because java packaging is enough), so please
feel free to remove them if you like.

best regards

Antonio Valentino
