Re: Is AGPLv3 DFSG-free?

I agree, which is why we chose the AGPLv3 for our project.

I've gotten the impression, though, that many people on this list are arguing against the AGPL on the basis that they want to retain people's "freedom" to exploit the ASP loophole.

Therefore, not by word-by-word interpretation, but by respecting the
spirit of the DFSG in the light of new developments, I consider AGPL
licensed works as acceptable for Debian. (This is, in a sense, a
political statement.)
