Re: MPL license

The MPL (section 3.2) requires that source code remain available for 12 after initial distribution or 6 months after distribution of a subsequent version. Debian's FTP archive does not do this. Regardless of whether the MPL is free or not, Debian does not (and with current infrastructure, can not guarantee that it will) follow this license.

Therefor, ftp-master should reject MPL-licensed uploads.

[Snapshot.debian.net does not help because Debian made legally responsible for ensuring the code remains available by the MPL, and as we know all to well snapshot.d.n is not invincible.]
