My point of view has been asked about this, since I'm packaging boswars,
which is the fusion of both stratagus and bos. If as it seems there are
legal troubles with bos, I guess it is quite safe to upload a fixed
packaged (e.g. by NMUing it), removing offending parts. The package
currently worked on being another source package, I don't think it is
needed that *I* do this particular upload.
