Actually, my understanding was that debian-legal couldn't agree whether it
was free or not, although I agreed to change it so that we could all agree
that it was free.
An actual date would be helpful. I am working on a new version at the
moment, and I was planning to change the licence in that version. But
if you give me a definite deadline, I can make sure to work to that.
