Package: audacity 
Severity: serious


Hi,

I'm filing a bugreport against audacity in case we forget at all.
It kind of sneaked in; without a resolution this package should be removed from 
Debian.

regards,
        junichi

The license of portaudio consists of two parts now: The binding license
and this request:

/*
 * The text above constitutes the entire PortAudio license; however,
 * the PortAudio community also makes the following non-binding
requests:
 *
 * Any person wishing to distribute modifications to the Software is
 * requested to send the modifications to the original developer so that
 * they can be incorporated into the canonical version. It is also
 * requested that these non-binding requests be included along with the
 * license above.
 */

It's now clear that this request is non-binding and does not conflict
with the DFSG.
