So please excuse my ignorance here: But how does that work? How can we,
as Debian, ensure that a user automatically complies with the license
when a package is installed and spawns up a service on a port? (Or
similarly, installs itself into a web server found on the system.)

Should it then communicate that it is Debian version X and that the
source can be found on any Debian mirror near you?

Kind regards
