Actually it doesn't change things.  Hpoj in woody isn't linked against
OpenSSL so it doesn't have this problem, when woody becomes the stable
release, Debian is fine as far as HPOJ licencing issues go.

I suppose I should of spelt this out for debian-legal.  What I'm actually
talking about is getting the licencing sorted out for the next release of
hpoj to go into unstable (sid), so from that side there is no rush for HP
to resolve the licence, just as long as it is being progressed within HP.

For David Engle. Is there a way to link with libsnmp but not libcrypto?
