+Subject: Re: Request for license clarification for bibclean
+In-Reply-To: Your message of Sat, 20 Sep 2003 16:14:26 +0200
+Message-ID: <cmm.>
+Thanks for your query about the licensing issue with bibclean.
+I am of course happy to see bibclean used and freely distributed.  In
+the past, I have not placed explicit licenses on my software packages,
+expecting them to be consider in the public domain, and freely
+distributable and modifiable.  However, at the urging of Karl Berry
+and Richard Stallman in their response to instances of unscrupulous
+reuse of free software, I have starting adding explicit GPL licensing
+as new package releases come out.  It is not practical to retrofit
+such licenses into older releases.
+The next release of bibclean will have such a license.
+I am at the tail end of a year-long book project, so many of my
+software projects have been delayed.
+Recently, I found some time to work on the next version of bibclean,
+which is primarily polishing of packaging, and enhancing portability
+even further.  That version will be bibclean-2-14, but it is quite
+likely that it won't be out before late fall this year.
+It would therefore make sense to delay your Debian packaging until
+then.  In the meantime, you can continue to point people to the
+official archive at
+       ftp://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/bibclean
