It is basically a buggy, orphaned and incomplete reference

from http://www.mpeg.org/MPEG/mpeg-pointers-and-resources/, the MSSG
software is considered "public-domain" nowadays.

I guess we can and should try to get the package into debian, with these
pieces of information included in debian/copyright.

I hope, but honestly do not believe, that one web page that mentions the term "public domain" and another one that holds software that can somehow be connected to the code in mpjegtools is sufficient to convince FTP-Masters of its DFSG-freeness. Anyway, we should start bring the package in shape and simply try!

For those interested, we could start with my packages targeted at debian-unofficial.org (when etch was stable!) found here:
