At least you are free to remove it from your copy also, it is not restricted for Debian-only (what would be non-free per DGSG). See debian/README.Debian-source. Anyway it would be still a RC bug if you embedde code copys in your package. If you *realy* just need the database file (not the library itself) you could also depend on the new geoip-database package from experimental, which just includes the database, but I do not recommend this. - -- /* Mit freundlichem Gruß / With kind regards, Patrick Matthäi E-Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Comment: Always if we think we are right, we were maybe wrong. */ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkksXj8ACgkQ2XA5inpabMdUXQCfT7lDyYU2MtZKCBnKeOplkf6h fVsAn0Y9CTSD8KiueMR712jrMssFDDZy =4MUL -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with a subject of "unsubscribe".
