- Looks like it is DFSG-free (please, confirm).

Comments, aditional information are welcome, including concerns about the
license. I want to be sure that the license is acceptable.

As per http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2004/debian-legal-200402/msg00132.html (found by searching legal for openpbs), there is no consensus that the above condition clause 5 is DFSG-free because of the lawyerbomb "freely redistributable ... without restriction".

Other than that, I think your analysis was pretty good. Personally, I wonder about whether we are allowed to make copies instead of just moving the one we are given, but I'd not oppose something just on that wording if no-one else agreed.
