Hm unsure. It really depends on how far you acknowledge the
virality of the GPL – Debian, AFAIK, tends to go more with
the FSF’s extreme interpretation…

But if the new maintainer is willing to completely remove the
old stuff that’s probably the best outcome, considering the
old maintainer is unwilling to cooperate.

(Personally I think debian/ should be permissive, especially
if there’s not too much “magic” in it… and others even think
there should be no magic in it…)
