Re: Transity: GPL-licensed but Free only for Non-Commercials

But again I say that this program is GPL-licensed, but it can be used freely (of charge) for non commercial purposes only, but proprietary (one must purchase license) for commercial use.

So I think this could violate DFSG #6, right?

However, when I saw the README, it says:

Transity is licensed under GPL-3.0-or-later and can be used free of charge at non-profits and for evaluation. For long-term usage, however, please make sure to purchase a license at [link redacted].

Is it acceptable for inclusion into Debian main, given the condition above?

It seems like that it would roughly correspond to something like "please
donate". Not binding, but a mere request.

Not problematic in my opinion.
