The fact that this is a restriction on use is a bit problematic, just from an end-user point of view. [I don't believe this affects its DFSG status, since it works with free data sources just fine.] It would probably be ideal if the user was warned about potentially restrictive data sources when they enabled them the first time too; this would give them a chance to do due diligence. (Or even when the program first started if the program already had some equivalent feature.) [And if it already does so, ignore my critique; I'm not familiar with this software beyond following your efforts to clean up the DFSG status with regards to the Bing logo.] At the very least, I'd stick a note in NEWS.Debian.gz. Thanks again for working on making this software DFSG free. -- Don Armstrong http://www.donarmstrong.com Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it. -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi _______________________________________________ Pkg-grass-devel mailing list Pkgfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-grass-devel
