I have uploaded mplayer_1.0.cvs20030324-1 to incoming (this package has small differences wrt the package that I announced on Saturday) and I have put it into http://tonelli.sns.it/pub/mplayer/sarge comments: * following the discussion started by Diego Biurrun <email@example.com> http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2004/debian-legal-200403/msg00235.html in debian-devel, I have prepared a new packaging of 'mplayer' (with code that comes from CVS) * the upstream tar.bz cannot be distributed by Debian, since it contains CSS code; so I am repackaging it * I have tried my best to address all known issues: - the package contains the detailed Copyright made by Diego Biurrun that documents the origin and copyright of all code - the package does not contain CSS code: I have delete it; 'mplayer' links to libdvdread3 (that is in Debian). AFAIK the package does not contain code on which there is active patent enforcement. - there is a script debian/cvs-changelog.sh that shows all changes done to files included in this source. This should comply with GPLv2 sec 2.a (in spirit if not in letter) For this reason, the source code contains CVS directories. And I hope it may satisfy Don Armstrong's concern about GPLv2 sec 2.a so, do we include mplayer in Debian ? :-) a. -- Andrea Mennucc "one houndred and fifty - the chicken sings"
