I have reviewed the discussion of http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2004/09/msg00132.html In my opinion, this license: + permits free redistribution (DFSG 1), * MIGHT include source code (DFSG 2), + permits derived works (DFSG 3), + acceptably protects integrity of the author's source (DFSG 4), * MIGHT discriminate against people (DFSG 5), + doesn't discriminate against fields of endeavour (DFSG 6), + allows distribution of licence (DFSG 7), + is not specific to debian (DFSG 8), + doesn't contaminate other software (DFSG 9), and I think it's GPL-incompatible due to section 5 and generally poorly-worded (in English, at least) with several lawyerbombs. I think it's impractical for debian, as section 2.2 might mean that the originals have to be hosted forever. Section 2.2 also forbids anonymous contributions, which might be a problem. I would suggest using the GPLv2+ instead, but software under this license might follow the DFSG. Which packages or potential packages are covered?
