I'd happily update http://www.debian.org/legal/licenses/ but I can't
see how it makes it sounds as if 4-clause BSD wouldn't meet DFSG. Can
you clarify? I don't want to encourage it because it has practical
problems when combined with the GPLs, but it's OK for main.
I can't update http://wiki.debian.org/DFSGLicenses well and everyone
should be very reluctant to use an unattributed wiki as a primary
source. I didn't find much there about 4-clause BSD either, really.

Not free software. RMS claimed such a question doesn't matter, in
I feel it's pretty obviously not free software and it's pretty obvious
why that's harmful - see: http://mjr.towers.org.uk/blog/2006/fdl#general
