What I want is for Debian to hold to the principles it has set itself. I
feel LyX has some of the same problems as KDE, and that if there was
agreement on that, that the similar actions should be taken. I feel that
Debian-legal could discuss it rationally.
The only reason I included the first line was to make it clear what
LyX's place in Debian is and that I wasn't attacking it out of
maliciousness. If it comes down to that - where it gets removed from
contrib - I will write a polite email to the authors concerning the
license and download the code and compile it myself. I might also find
the time to convert LyX to a free toolkit like GTK or FLTK.
