Bug#122929: wpoison to be included in Debian


Wpoison looks like a very nice script, would you like it to be packaged and
included in the Debian GNU/Linux distribution?

I've analised your license, BSDish with an additional 4th clausse, and
it appears to be free software as with our Free Software Guidelines
(http://www.debian.org/social_contract.html#guidelines). wpoison is now
in queue to be packaged.

We respect and honor your 4th clausse. however, there are some things
that I'd appreciate from you of being changed:

- redistribution of the logo.gif image appears to be allowed by clausse 1,
could you also allow using a local copy of such image to comply with 4th
clausse by linking to your website? this would give us the possibility to
such image in the package and save you some bandwidth.

- the GIF image format is covered by an Unisys patent. we don't support
such patents because they're an obstacle for the people that makes use of
including you as author of the image. See
could you either allow redistribution of the same logo in the alternative
PNG format, or provide a PNG logo in your website to remotely link it?

Thanks very much for your attention. please keep the CC field on your
so that the conversation is logged in our Prospective Packages database.
