I have a question about my package "clipgrab".
The license says, that the program is licensed

he has the full copyright for the logo and the name.
He allowed my explicitly, that I may package the
program for Debian. He hopes, that this will be no
problem with the Debian policy. He said, changing
the logo and the name makes no sense.
The included changelog file describes, that only
the program is under GPLv3, but not the logo and
name.
Is this package correct now? How can / must I
describe the allowance of the author?
Maybe you could have a look at the package.
I have uploaded it to mentors (see earlier messages).


"for Debian" is unacceptable: All that Debian redistribute (in the "main" archive) must be equally redistributed by others as well.

Sounds like you then need to strip logo, and rename the project - similar to Firefox redistributed in Debian as Iceweasel.

Please if you have more questions about this, then this is not the right list: Discuss such things at debian-le...@lists.debian.org.


Kind regards,
