Re: RFS: ax-emergency-listen

Hello all,
Reading the link of the software I read:
"The use of the APRS® Internet Gateway subsystem is allowed only for licensed radio amateur operators. APRS® is a registered trademark of Bob Bruninga, WB4APR."

How does it fit with the GPL or the Debian requirements for free software?
I have not read the full license of APRS but it seems that we could face some problems there...

What do you think?

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "ax-emergency-listen".

* Package name    : ax-emergency-listen
 Version         : 1.3.2-1
 Upstream Author : Guido Trentalancia IZ6RDB <iz6rdb@trentalancia.com>
* URL             : http://iz6rdb.trentalancia.com/en/aprs_igate.html
* License         : GPL-3.0+
 Section         : hamradio

It builds these binary packages:
ax-emergency-listen - small utility to monitor APRS emergency packets

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 608964

My motivation for maintaining this package is: I would like to use it in
'Debian' version.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/a/ax-emergency-listen
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/a/ax-emergency-listen/ax-emergency-listen_1.3.2-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
Fabrizio Regalli
