  Package name    : libmath-random-perl
  Version         : 0.71
  Upstream Author : John Venier and Barry W. Brown
  URL             : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Math-Random/
  License         : same conditions as Perl, plus some public domain, plus some BAD NEWS.
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : random number generators

 Math::Random is  a Perl port  of the C version of randlib,
 which is   a suite of  routines for  generating  random deviates.  See
 "RANDLIB" for more information.
 This port supports all of the distributions  from which the Fortran
 and C  versions generate deviates.   The major functionalities that
 are excluded  are   the  multiple  generators/splitting  facility  and
 antithetic  random number  generation.   These facilities,  along with
 some of  the distributions which are  included, are probably not of
 interest   except  to the   very  sophisticated   user.  If there   is
 sufficient interest, the excluded   facilities will be included in   a
 future  release.   The code  to   perform the  excluded facilities  is
 available as randlib in Fortran and C source.

I am interested in libmath-random-perl because it is a dependancy of the new
upstream release of BioPerl. A preliminary package is almost ready. However,
quoting from README:

 THE BAD NEWS.  We adapted or modified many routines published in the
 ACM's Transactions on Mathematical Software.  The ACM has copyright on
 these routines (see the ACM statement on software policy in the POD/man
 page).  Commercial incorporation of these routines into products to be
 sold requires permission and perhaps payment to the ACM.  But if you
 don't plan to sell them, enjoy.  (Note, however, that algorithms per se
 cannot be copyrighted; see 17 USC 102(b).)

libmath-random-perl is therefore non-free. Is the Debian Perl team interested
in hosting this package ? If not, we will host it in Debian Med.

Have a nice day,
