Apparently they are, see the commit  > CUPS is developed by Apple Inc. and distributed as open source software > under the Apache License, Version 2.0. Significant contributions to CUPS > must be licensed to Apple using the Apple Contributor Agreement: As I understand it, there are two alternative visions here: * either we consider libcups* and friends covered by the system library exception; but this has not traditionally been Debian's stance; and we still refuse to apply that exception to OpenSSL; * … or we don't, and that change effectively forbids linking GPL2-only software to dynamicall link against libcups* and friends. If the latter applies (and I'm afraid it will), how should we encode that in the packaging, add Breaks in the source package against all GPL2-only reverse dependencies, and wait+hope that they get fixed one day ? That seems only realistic in experimental. @ftpmasters: is the above aligned with your line of thought ? As another question for you; can I force CUPS to go through NEW, as the license change is radical ? Cheers, OdyX  https://github.com/apple/cups/commit/ e310189747c161ac6e737eedadf8f45d11bf2253
