Well, I am basically interested in argouml so I did a little research
on the new upstream some time ago.

The main problem is that they - don't ask me why - they started to use
netbeans stuff for the uml model implementation. The problem is that
netbeans stuff is licensed under the SPL alone which with a quick
google search is likely to be undistributable by debian.

So the first thing before a new upstream version will enter debian
is to check if there is a clear status for the SPL with debian-legal.
Thats something which still has to be done. And I have currently no
time for some legal discussions.

Wolfgang
