Bug#321178: [Fwd: licensing of the x3270 code]
The x3270 package was previously removed from the archive due to
licensing issues (see #248853 for details).
I opened this ITP after the 5250 code was removed from the upstream
package. Also, I'm waiting for a clarification about one of the
licenses, before uploading.
