[Fwd: Re: [gNewSense-users] PFV call for help.]
We (gNewSense) just had someone report  two clauses in the krb5 (source) package.  has its current (Sid) copyright file.
I dont see a bug about it, so i'm asking if someone could look at the licence and say if they think the clauses are DFSG free or not?
Thanks in advance,
 Email to gnewsense-users follows:
... I think the license of krb5
has two unclear sections regarding freedom:
* line 18-21: "Export of this software from the United States of America
a specific license from the United States Government. It is the
responsibility of any person or organization contemplating export to
obtain such a license before exporting."
This section may not suit freedom 2: The freedom to redistribute copies
so you can help your neighbor.
* line 81-83: "OpenVision
also retains copyright to derivative works of the Source Code, whether
created by OpenVision or by a third party." I think this could threat
this software freedom.
