Re: ftp.debian.org: RM: imapsync -- RoM; author doesn't want us to distribute his program

I do not understand why you wish to remove from the debian archive
software that debian users may rely on (as far as I can see from the
original report, not everyone's use of the version Debian ships hits the
reported problem), just because of a possible license problem in a
*different version* of the software than debian ships.

As far as I can see, the author of this software has even said in a
message in this bug report that "You can even make [this software] a GPL
software"[1], which I understand him to mean that the intent of the new
license is to be GPL-compatible!
