Please note that the ‘debian-legal’ forum is also not a good one to seek
legal advice.

Nor is the ‘debian-legal’ forum a good place for general advice about
software licensing. Our scope is limited to discussing the legal effects

A backward-sorted quote chain is not likely to be a reliable guide to
what is needed now. Could you summarise the issue, and the question
being asked of us here?
