I've packaged FlameRobin - wx GUI for manipulating Firebird databases.
The upstream source is licensed under Initial Developer Public License
1.0. There is also an external library, which source is included in
upstream and which is licensed under MPL 1.0.
IDPL 1.0 is MPL-derivate.
I've recently prepared an updated package for firebird2 - the Firebird
server and associated libraries and utilities. It is also licensed under
IDPL 1.0 and the upload (kindly sponsored by Christohper Martin) was
accepted in main.
My question is: Will FlameRobin be accepted in main? Or should I try to
convince upstream to change the license? Is IDPL 1.0 more DFSG-friendly
than MPL 1.0? (I make this assumption because noone objected against
recently uploaded firebird2)
Thanks for your advice,
