Please unblock package getlive

I was planning to upload the latest upstream release in June, when I detected
that the source code (including the one currently in the archive) embeds a
piece of code that is non-free (non-commercial clause), see #677005.

Also, both the current version in the archive, and the last one released by
upstream are useless, as the Hotmail page has changed.

Upstream has fixed a while ago the functionality problem, and just fixed the
freeness issue. Both are in CVS only.

Since the code is not exactly stellar, and there were many changes, I don't
feel comfortable backporting the hotmail fix, and fixing the freeness issue
would mean a source repackaging that includes code changes, so I think that
uploading the latest version is going to cause a lot less issues.

TL;DR: please, accept this unblock exception :-)

unblock getlive/2.4+cvs20120801-1

What do you propose then? If it is not going into stable, I think
I'd just remove the package from Debian..

Sounds like a plan.

I'm closing this unblock request since the package has been removed from
Wheezy (more than a month ago) and won't be able to migrate again.
