Re: Release-critical Bugreport for January 7, 2000
(CC'd to debian-legal since it seems more appropriate for that list - note
that I'm not currently subscribed to -legal):
If I'm reading this snippet correctly, all it's saying is that the images
and other data can't be distributed w/o the GPL'd source code. I'm not
entirely sure on whether or not this fits w/the DFSG... glancing thru the
DFSG I don't see why it's a problem. Or perhaps I'm misinterpreting the
license, the DFSG, or both. Just my $0.02.
