Source: antlr Version: 2.7.7+dfsg-5 Severity: serious Tags: upstream Justification: Policy 2.3
The PyANTLR component – lib/python/antlr/ in the source tree – was written by Wolfgang Häfelinger, who, according to his website, is German. The PyANTLR component references a “LICENSE.txt” file “for license details”, which is missing. The top-level licence file of antlr cannot be meant by it, because German citizens cannot disclaim copyright and let their work wilfully enter Public Domain. This means that PyANTLR is unlicenced proprietary software, unless the author adds a DFSG-free licence for his code and the Debian maintainer adds it to debian/copyright accordingly. I’ve added Wolfgang Häfelinger to Cc, so he can comment directly and is notified about this issue. -- System Information: Debian Release: jessie/sid APT prefers unstable APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (500, 'testing'), (500, 'stable') Architecture: i386 (i686) Kernel: Linux 3.14-1-amd64 (SMP w/4 CPU cores) Locale: LANG=C, LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/lksh __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
