Re: kde and debian a long love story :)

I think this matter has gone beyond a consensus of debian-legal as any sort
of authority.  If (and I do say if) we want any sort of official answer..
we need to consult either a lawyer giving us a legal (ie, we can hold him
to it officially) opinion or RMS who can atleast speak from an "what he
intended" point of view.
