(please CC: as I'm not on the list) I was considering packaging Titan (since it's a good complement to Tiger and I believe the authors have done a good job with this tool). It was previously published it under a non-free license (you had to give many to a charity they chose if you made a profit with it). However now it has been published under a license based on the Artistic License. However, I wondered if it's really DFSG-free. Could someone advice me on this license? (see below) If it _is_ free. I'll probably start packaging it and send an ITP. Thanks Javi --------- License follows: (also available at http://www.fish.com/titan/) Definitions: "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files created through textual modification, or segments thereof.
