Re: is igmpproxy dfsg compliant?

Hello debian-legal list!

I prepared igmpproxy package on https://mentors.debian.net/package/igmpproxy
and I was directed here to ask question about Stanford license and igmpproxy.

Looks like that same question was already asked in 2009, but it is without
answer. Can you look at it?

Because igmpproxy is based on mrouted originally licensed under Stanford
and later relicensed under BSD, I would consider it DFSG compliant...

Or is there any problem?
