The QPL licence

Sorry, this should have gone to -legal straight, not first to

Please CC me on replies!

I would like to package a software released under the QPL licence:


It *seems* that the QPL is DFSG-free, but I would like to have
confirming voices. It disallows the source code to be distributed in
modified form, but allows the packaging of patches alongside for
modification at build-time. Thus, I think paragraph 4 of the DFSG
makes this package packageable.

I am trying to convince the author to change the licence, but if
I don't succeed... can I package libcwd for Debian?
