Package: alice
Severity: wishlist

Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to
create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a
video to share on the web. Alice is a teaching tool for introductory
computing. It uses 3D graphics and a drag-and-drop interface to facilitate a
more engaging, less frustrating first programming experience.

In Alice's interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to
create a program, where the instructions correspond to standard statements
in a production oriented programming language, such as Java, C++, and C#.
Alice allows students to immediately see how their animation programs run,
enabling them to easily understand the relationship between the programming
statements and the behavior of objects in their animation. By manipulating
the objects in their virtual world, students gain experience with all the
programming constructs typically taught in an introductory programming
course.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
As stated at Alice's homesite [1], alice has an EULA with item #3, which
is not compatible with DFSG in a similar to Mozilla's way.

Subject: Alice has no EULA. It is free software.
Date: Tue, 7 Oct 2008 12:59:04 -0700
Alice does not have a EULA. It is distributable under what appears to
be the 4-clause BSD license, which is considered a free license by FSF,
OSI, and Debian.

Unfortunatley, they do refer to their license as a EULA, and the first
sentence includes the word "use", but nowhere in the license do they
actually restrict use of the software.

Hash: SHA1

A current roadblock with Alice (er... "Carol", depending on whether
the ftpmasters consider the license free or not) packaging is that
there is no Linux source available. According to upstream, "better
linux support" will be forthcoming with the 3.0 release of Alice this
Spring.

As such, I'm holding off with an attempt to package until upstream
starts offering source.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of carol back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting carol, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 500648 ITP: carol -- educational programming in a 3D environment
 owner 500648 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <500648@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
