For the purposes of inclusion in Debian, the only thing which matters is whether or not your software is made available under a public license which is compatible with our Debian Free Software Guidelines. If your new work is an original work of authorship and you're the copyright holder then you can choose to license it under any terms you'd like, including terms which would make it suitable for inclusion in Debian. -- Brian Ristuccia email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org  Being a workalike of another piece of software does not necessarily make a derivative work. Despite their similar functionality, and in some cases even call-for-call compatibility, no (sane) person believes that GNU libc is a work derived from sysV libc or that libeditline is a work derived from GNU readline or that Linux is a work derviced from UNIX. Of course if you engage in wholesale copying, all bets are off.
