It must be absolutely clear for any party, including the people that are interested in redistributing work from us (think sidux, ubuntu or other derivative distributions) what the exact redistribution terms are. Otherewise there is a considerable risk that the archive admistrators decide to not include your work in the archive.

I'd say the README pretty clearly states jack-tools is GPL'ed - and after all, the old now-orphaned jack-tools had the same problem and made it into Debian fine.

We all want to do our best. Now that you want to work on this packaging, some of us take a fresh look at the packaging and discover flaws which were also flaws in the past, just not noticed.

Noone has the intend of "testing you" or something like that! :-)

Nonetheless, as promised before, I'll prepare a patch that gets everything into the form recommended by GNU and ask upstream (Rohan) to apply it.


Kind regards,
