Bug#389525: dcc: non-free beginning from version 1.3.0

Package: dcc
Version: 1.3.42-1
Severity: serious
Justification: violating DFSG §5 and DFSG §6

     * This agreement is not applicable to any entity which sells anti-spam
     * solutions to others or provides an anti-spam solution as part of a
     * security solution sold to other entities, or to a private network
     * which employs the DCC or uses data provided by operation of the DCC
     * but does not provide corresponding data to other users.

This is definitly non-free. It looks like you did not read my orphan
message, where i said:

> DCC's upstream decided to change it's license to non-free according DFSG
> with version 1.3.0 stating:

> "The Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse source carries a license that is
> free to organizations that do not sell filtering devices or services
> except to their own users and that participate in the global DCC
> network."

> If you intend to take that package, please consider moving it to
> non-free, as upstreams license is non-free according to DFSG §6.

Best regards,


PS: i am happy seing someone adopting that package.
