Yes, 'cause of I've removed it as license issues are the same, I've
just reworked the packaging.

As I remember, we just need to have a DFSG tarball, right?

Yes, I can prepare a DFSG-clean tarball but it isn't the only thing we
need, I think...

Looking back at the log of this discussion, I think we just need to patch mentioned below and a DFSG tarball. Perhaps Berkhard, the upstream author, has already included the patch and stripped out the non-DFSG stuff from his CVS, so a 1.0.3~cvs package would be easier:

As I understand it, in principle we are safe if we can ensure that

Ideal for us (and for other distributors, I guess) would be if those
4-clause BSD parts was placed in separate files by you upstream. That

i have submitted a patch to burkhard (and he has quickly incorporated it
in upstream - thanks again) that does:
- rebase lib/base64.c on a clause-3 BSD licensed version of the file
(the new base is
http://mediatools.cs.ucl.ac.uk/nets/mmedia/browser/common/trunk/src/base64.c ,
which is simply a re-licensed (with agreement by the copyright owner)
version of the original file)
- lib/os.c has the BSD-code moved away into lib/os_inet_aton.c (which
can be excluded by us)
- include/bgav_sem.h has the BSD-code moved out into
include/bgav_sem_bsd.h (which can be excluded by us)

so i think the issues are now fixed upstream...

Can you add this patch to the gmerlin-avcoder package in our git?
AFAIUI, this is the last open issue in this package that prevents it
from being uploaded, right?
