I've just checked the COPYING file provided with the pt tarball, and
it's the plain vanilla GPL2 license, without an OpenSSL Toolkit
License Exception like that as found within the CUPS license:


License Exceptions

In addition, as the copyright holder of CUPS, Easy Software Products
grants the following special exceptions:

   1. Apple Operating System Development License Exception;
   2. OpenSSL Toolkit License Exception;
	a. Easy Software Products explicitly allows the compilation
	and distribution of the CUPS software with the OpenSSL

No developer is required to provide these exceptions in a derived work.

As cups-pt (the current Debian package name) is a GTK+ front-end to
CUPS, can it be classified as a derived work? Does it matter? I have
no knowledge of the current situation in dealing with OpenSSL
libraries. I just assumed they could go in main as there are other
packages such as apache-ssl that are in main.

Yours sincerely,
