Bug#512789: Review of copyright file for nfswatch.

user debian-legal@lists.debian.org

Dear all, dear Daniel,

in the hope of speeding up the processing of the NEW queue, I investigated the
file debian/copyright of the package nfswatch, using the URLs provided in the
ITP bug:


I have found no discrepancy between the content of debian/copyright and the
content of the package.

I note however that the current upstream maintainer (re)licenced the source
code of the original upstream authors to the "BSD" license, whereas the
original instructions were:

  You can redistribute this program as much as you want.  All we ask is that
  you give credit where credit is due.  If you make modifications or bug fixes,
  please send them back to us, in "diff -c" format, so they can be incorporated
  into the next release.

This was done probably in 2005, after 9 years of Upstream inactivity.

Have a nice day,
