Re: [hpoj-devel] Bug#147430: hpoj: Linking against OpenSSL licensing modification (GPL)
1. Add a statement to the top of the file LICENSE.OpenSSL saying that
since it was effectively an extension to the license statements in the
individual source files in the hpoj package, only the copyright holder(s)
of those source files (namely HP) may update the LICENSE.OpenSSL file.
I don't know if that is reliable--please ask a lawyer.
2. Do away with LICENSE.OpenSSL altogether and change each exception
statement (at least in the HP-copyrighted files) to limit OpenSSL to
"those versions having a free but GPL-incompatible license as deemed
by the Free Software Foundation."
That could work, but it would be much better to state a criterin that
a a person can check on his own without having to refer to statements
from the FSF.
