Hey, and a flower on the box and plant a tree for every copy made.

How many silly restricitions can we bear?

I don't see why Debian should follow the above requirements for a non-free
package. This is annoying.

I appreciate your effort Paul, that you make a pine package for us
available. I don't think it should be distributed on debian mirrors, though.

Thank you,
