kaid license non-free?
I currently use Team Xlink's kaid program to connect to my xbox. I'm interested in getting this packaged, possibly myself, but I'm not sure of the licensing issues. I found
this forum entry on the kaid site, which describes the license as "a standard BSD license, with an extra condition regarding commercialisation of derivatives." There is also a post from a non-DD suggesting it is non-free, but suggesting a post to this mailing list for confirmation.
So, I ask you, free or non.
