Re: MPL license

You first need to show that there are bugs and that the precedent
decisions are wrong. So far nobody actually managed to do this.
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.]
