If upstream and the package uploader togehter don't make the copyright status so clear it's easy for ftp master (or anyone else) to review, then yes, I think we'd be better off with not adding that software to Debian. Ftp master time is a scarce resource, I think we should try to be careful of how we spend it. > Do you really want to reject these packages outright from Debian, even > though they follow the DFSG? Do we really want to pile on more work on an already busy team just so you can do less?
