Re: kde and debian a long love story :)

If what you say is true, it would allow debian to include
kde. but not allow people to port GPL software to kde.
So all scratch kde software can be included. but
kemacs is impossible :).

have been Qt-ized or KDE progrmas usingcode taken from a GPL'd program (to

time to go through KDE source and do "due diligence" in amking sure
everything is legally square by the letter of the law, not just the intent
