Dear Alex,

I reviewed the licenses in the sources of Cufflinks and found that
the files under src/locfit are not free, because their license
forbids to make benchmarks…


Would you have time to contact the authors of Cufflinks or locfit to sort out
the situation, or shall we distribute cufflinks in non-free ?

Have a nice day,

Sure , I try to get in touch with locfit authors .

Best regards ,

Hi Charles and Debian Med ,

I tried to contact the author of locfit , but unsuccessfully .
The author is Catherine Loader , but the email addresses on the website http://stat.bell-labs.com/project/locfit/index.html are not valid . I tried to find other addresses , and wrote a message but didn't get any answer , so I assume that they also are not valid .

So if no one has objections against non-free than we can distribute it in non-free .

Btw there is a new upstream version , I'll add it to git later during weekend .

Best regards ,
