IMAPD license problem?
I've been told that you, or someone working with you, has threatened to
sue the FSF (Free Software Foundation) for distributing modified copies
of IMAPD. I believe the IMAPD copyright contains the following text:
# Date: 7 December 1989
# Last Edited: 9 January 1998
# Copyright 1998 by the University of Washington
# Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software and its
# documentation for any purpose and without fee is hereby granted, provided
# that the above copyright notice appears in all copies and that both the
# above copyright notice and this permission notice appear in supporting
# documentation, and that the name of the University of Washington not be
# used in advertising or publicity pertaining to distribution of the software
# without specific, written prior permission. ...
I have several questions about this:
 Is this true? (the threatened legal action)
[1a] If the legal threats did not occur, could you set me straight on
what you know about whatever happened or didn't happen?
 If the legal threats occurred, was the FSF distributing the IMAPD
software covered by by this 1998 copyright license?
 If this 1998 IMAPD is what the FSF was distributing, what clause
of this copyright license is being violated?
[3a] If this 1998 IMAPD is not what the FSF was distributing, what
were they distributing?
[I'm writing on behalf of Debian, and we're trying to decide if we should
pull Mark Crispin's IMAPD out of our distribution.]
