Maia Mailguard License
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
There has been a RFP out for Maia Mailguard for quite some time
now, and as we use it to handle our clients spam/virus filtering, I
was seriously considering packing it for Debian.
The license on Maia isn't very nice (see bottom or ) from what I can
tell. It seems a little BSD-ish with an extra clause about branding
(clause 4). I'm not that skilled with legal-speak, and I was wondering
if someone could clear up if this the DFSG compatible, or whether it
would need to be relicensed to get into Debian.
Thank you very much,
