bug #96601: system copy of GPL


Could someone from debian-legal take a look at bug 96601?


(I'd reproduce it here but it may change between now and when someone
reads this message).

Basically, the author is objecting to the Debian policy of referring to
the system-wide copy of the GPL; he is arguing that a copy of the GPL
should be included with his package, which is GPL'd. He makes some
pretty good points, but Debian policy disagrees with him.

I'd welcome anyone's input.



P.S. Incidentically, the CLISP maintainer seems to be AWOL, so in the
end it may not matter much. However, I may decide to adopt CLISP once
I'm a maintainer myself, so I'd like to get this sorted out.
