Re: Is AGPLv3 DFSG-free?

To be honest, I just don't want our project to be in the middle of this given the situation;
I've been told that other AGPLv3 licensed projects in a greater state of stability are in the pipeline toward ftpmasters, which will set precidence.  If they approve them, we'll get back in that pipeline ourselves.

I believe we'll be able to offer Debian packages via our Launchpad PPA (where the Ubuntu packages will be distributed from at least until intrepid+1), so it's not like Debian users are going to be excluded.  Most Debian users I've known have non-free disabled by default in any case, and maintaining our packages via PPA is less work not to mention sans being put in the proprietary software repository.

I think this is a shame.
