Re: Looking for +info about the license of a new package: Ossec

Ok, it will never be included in main repository with this source code, but, does it mean debian will not distribute this package in any way? will it not even be included in contrib or non-free repository?

This is exactly the same license as the website.

It is just GNU GPLv3 with clarifications about their interpretation of
the phrase "derivative works", which may or may not apply in a court.

Same comment applies about OpenSSL. Unless they amend the license,
Debian cannot distribute their software as long as it links to or uses
code from OpenSSL:
