Re: Ghostscript licensing changed to AGPL

* Jonas Smedegaard <dr@jones.dk>, 2014-05-08, 21:37:
So if Debian provides, say, a web frontend to Ghostscript, then with AGPL Ghostscript running that web frontend as a service for others only require an interface serving its sources if the _webmaster_ changes the code for that frontend?

Not if Debian makes changes to both the frontend and AGPL Ghostscript?

That seems like a loophole to me: If Google wants an advantage by running better-than-ghostscript.google.com PDF convertor, they can simply let another company/organisation/person be the "Debian" in their chain and not need to reveal their patches to their users.

You missed the hidden §18 (“No Loopholes Allowed”):
