ng-spice legal-license advice


I have itp'd ngspice which MAY have legal issues stopping it from 
inclusion into debian ...

This person contacted me (he is applying to become a maintainer)

This person says that license issues stop the inclusion of this package 
with debian ... from the ng spice source ball I find the following 
licenses - many licenses as it is the combination of decades of 
different distrubutions and contributions to spice :
Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software and its
documentation for educational, research and non-profit purposes,
without fee, and without a written agreement is hereby granted,

This is very free.

The xspice src files include this copyright :
Copyright 1991
Georgia Tech Research Corporation
Atlanta, Georgia 30332
All Rights Reserved

But I don't think this clashes with the other permission ....

I am a little confused ... I originally thought it was fine for Debian, 
however Oktas thought it wasn't .... so now I approach Debian legal for 
more insight.

thank you
