Let me quote this blog entry by Bradley Kuhn:

Yeah, right.

Then, the FSF publishes the GNU AfferoGPL v3 and claims that it is a
Free Software license, by hand waving.
And it also makes the GNU GPL v3 compatible with that problematic
This is how the FSF keeps its promises...   :-( 

 Need some pdebuild hook scripts?
