Re: RFC/RFS: libswixml-java: a small GUI generating engine for Java applications and applets

It was quickly pointed out to me that this clause in the license may
prevent me from calling the package libswixml-java.

Do others think this is true?  Is this a "Product derived from this
software"?  Or is this the product itself?  I guess this is software
derrived.  I had to modify the .orig.tar.gz btw in order to
remove .jar's and to reomve their non-free icons, which i guess really
pushes it into the "derived" category.

Should I just request permission from the Swixml Project Management?  Or
does that still get us into problems?

Or should i just rename the package?  and If I do, to what?
