Dear Mentors,

I chose a package that I want to create. I was seeking for copyright
and I just found the information I'll show below:

" It is a free software distributed under GPL terms,

see www.gnu.org for more informations. You can use or

redistribute this software, but need preserve the credits

of author."

That's fine if it's referring to the copyright notice or list of
authors, as that's required by the GPL and copyright law anyway.


I have read Debian Free Software Guidelines but I'm not sure, I mean,
When the author says: " but need preserve the credits" and knowing
that this software is distributed under GPL terms, do you think are
there any problems to upload it into debian?

I'd be glad if you could answer me.

Regards and thanks for reading,

Muammar El Khatib.
