Bug#497703: HappyDoc copyright status clarification

Hi Doug,


I understand you are the upstream maintainer of HappyDoc.

Yes, that's right.

This bug is marked "release critical", meaning that the package is not
releasable in this state and will not ship with the upcoming Lenny release.

Whilst I am aware that you no longer support development of HappyDoc, it would be extremely helpful if you could reply to this message (retaining the Cc's) with a statement declaring the licence of the HappyDoc source. The
debian/copyright file could then be modified to reflect this, the bug
closed, and HappyDoc would ship with Lenny.

Alternatively, if you think Debian should discontinue shipping HappyDoc,
please let us know your thoughts.

The source for HappyDoc is available under a BSD license.

Since I don't support it any more, and it does not work with some language constructs from the newer versions of Python, I'm not sure you want to include it any longer. I'll leave it up to you whether or not to pull it out of your release.

I am willing to give commit access to someone else if you want to fix the problems with the packaging (or with the language support :-).
