I don't think there's a debian-legal position (whatever that may mean)
on the GNU GPL v3.
My own personal analysis may be found here:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2007/06/msg00267.html

In extreme summary, I dislike both clause 5(d) and clause 7(b).

This license was discussed on debian-legal and considered as failing to
meet the DFSG, if I recall correctly:
