Bug#688110: Please wheezy-ignore 688095 or unblock: yorick/2.2.02+dfsg1-1 (4-clause BSD leftover in Yorick)
Yorick is an interpreted language developed at UCB. It is under 3-clause BSD
It has recently been brought to my attention that there is one file bearing the
obnoxious 4-clause BSD license. 4-clause BSD is DFSG-free, but GPL-incompatible
(and overall we'd like to get rid of it).
Problem: many Yorick plug-ins are released under GPL, the package ships some
file under GPL.
- its just a tiny header file which doesn't get installed;
- its clearly a leftover and upstream has already corrected it on their git;
- it's a modified file coming from actual *BSD, from which the clause has been
I think it's best to just ignore it for Wheezy.
Alternatively, I can upload a "new upstream" version with those changes (Yorick
is already repacked with a +dsfg version anyway):
- replace this file with the git version (which only changes the copyright
- mention it in debian/copyright;
- mention it in debian/changelog.
Kind regards, Thibaut.
