Bug#497117: tangogps: Contains glade-generated files without source

Package: tangogps
Version: 0.9.2-2
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 2.2.1

[Cc: debian-legal]


The files


appear to be generated using the Glade user interface builder. However
the source code for them (i.e. the modifiable glade project) seems to
be missing from the source tarball. Sorry if I'm mistaken, I just
couldn't find it there.

I believe the generated files are not "source code" as defined by GPL
(i.e. "in preferred form of modification"). Hence without distributing
the Glade projects along with the files they cannot be distributed
under the GPL. Furthermore, I believe this fails DFSG #2.
