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?
