2006-10-15
2008-04-14
Reason for being non-free: The license is non-transferable and does not even permit redistribution. There seems to be a vague exception to this license: "Dictionary bases are provided by Arsenal Company for KSocrat only."
Resolution:
The permission to distribute the data along with ksocrat is so vague that we might not be permitted to distribute ksocrat and ksocrat-data in separate packages and repository areas (like we're doing now) and we have no idea if the exception is transferable (the license isn't). Should ask for removal since it's orphaned.

Reason for being non-free: very simple license says it is "free software". fails to have an explicit clause allowing modification. clarification would be good, but IMO there is no compelling reason why this can't go in main.

absence of an explicit grant of permission, therefore no right to even distribute (discussion); Author can't be contacted

Reason for being non-free: various & unclear. internet-developed software from the dawn ages before we realised explicit licenses were needed.
Resolution:
Russ Allbery: "This is partly replaced by mailpost and/or news2mail (I forget which direction newsgate goes), included in INN under a better license. A bit of additional development effort would likely kill newsgate completely; it's not a very complicated program, particularly when written in a better programing language for string manipulation than C."

2008-03-04
Reason for being non-free: modified files must be renamed and clearly identified. Why is this in non-free?

Steve Langasek: "ISTR this license element came up for discussion in the context of the LaTeX license; I /thought/ the conclusion was that requiring changes to filenames in the source was ok, but that requiring changes to filenames in the binary package was not" (discussion) Elsewhere, Knuth says that "Public-domain sources for all programs and data of The Stanford GraphBase are freely available."

Branden Robinson: "I don't believe that's correct. A requirement to change the filename at any stage was dropped from the latest draft of the LPPL that Frank Mittelbach posted to debian-legal (summer 2003).

I personally would maintain that a requirement to change a filename is an unacceptable restriction on one's freedom to modify the work. The LaTeX Project no longer appears to be interested in contending this issue, and I know of no other copyright holder of software packaged by the Debian Project who does." (discussion)
