Hi, I investigated some time to fix the problem that one part of libcolt-java which has the following problem:

The software and documentation made available under the terms of this license are provided with no warranty. We did not found a way to contact the authors and have not yet found a way to free the actual code shipped with the libcolt-jar source. However the license also says : "Check the FreeHEP home page for more info." and I noticed that several modules of the freehep project are maintained by Debian Java and Giovanni Mascellani (in CC) is frequently mentioned as uploader. So I tried to ask you for help. I noticed that the code with the questionable non-military license has the files: $ find src/hep/ -type f -name "*.java" | sort src/hep/aida/bin/AbstractBin1D.java src/hep/aida/bin/AbstractBin.java src/hep/aida/bin/BinBinFunction1D.java src/hep/aida/bin/BinFunction1D.java src/hep/aida/bin/BinFunctions1D.java src/hep/aida/bin/DynamicBin1D.java src/hep/aida/bin/MightyStaticBin1D.java src/hep/aida/bin/QuantileBin1D.java src/hep/aida/bin/StaticBin1D.java src/hep/aida/IAxis.java src/hep/aida/IHistogram1D.java src/hep/aida/IHistogram2D.java src/hep/aida/IHistogram3D.java src/hep/aida/IHistogram.java src/hep/aida/ref/AbstractHistogram1D.java src/hep/aida/ref/AbstractHistogram2D.java src/hep/aida/ref/AbstractHistogram3D.java src/hep/aida/ref/Converter.java src/hep/aida/ref/FixedAxis.java src/hep/aida/ref/Histogram1D.java src/hep/aida/ref/Histogram2D.java src/hep/aida/ref/Histogram3D.java src/hep/aida/ref/Histogram.java src/hep/aida/ref/Test2.java src/hep/aida/ref/Test.java src/hep/aida/ref/Util.java src/hep/aida/ref/VariableAxis.java which has a few similar looking names in FreeHep at http://java.freehep.org/svn/repos/freehep/list/freehep/tags/freehep-aidajni-3.2.6/src/main/java/?bypassEmpty=true Please forgive my Java naivity but is there a slight chance to free libcolt-java (and thus enable depending packages moving from contrib to main) when looking from your freehep educated point of view. Any other hint is welcome as well (for instance you might have some contact to original hep authors or whatever).
