Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package zangband

zangband/1:2.7.5pre1-7 fixes two serious issues with the debian/copyright
file: #696916 [1] and #696919 [2]. Both issues are considered RC bugs
for the upcoming release Debian Wheezy.

Markus Koschany made the necessary changes and added himself to the package
maintainers (with consent from the package's maintainer). I reviewed his
changes, asked him for necessary changes, built and uploaded the updated
package.

I am attaching the debdiff.

Cheers,

Adrian

I am not convinced that version 1:2.7.5pre1-7 does not fix all license
issues in zangband (see the remark about "Files: debian/*" below).

This makes the previous paragraph redundant according to DEP-5

... and this is very likely to make the resulting code undistributable
if the debian packaging includes patches touching the upstream part[1].
 Incidentally, zangband does appear to have patches in debian/patches/*.

~Niels

[1] Given the upstream license is non-free, I sincerely doubt it is
GPL-3+ compatible.

Thanks for your hints and sorry for the inconvenience.

Both licenses apply because Zangband is based on Angband. Would it be
sufficient to write both licenses under one paragraph like

Files: *
Copyright: Year Names
License:
 [Zangband license]
 [Angband license]

?

I see your point. Do you consider replacing the GPL-3+ license with
either the Zangband license or granting all files in debian/ to the
Public Domain as a sufficient solution?

Drew, what do you think about this?

Regards,

Markus

[*] On a side note the Angband package in Debian is dual licensed under
GPL-2 and the Angband license, maybe we can achieve something similar in
the future.

Dear release team,

i have prepared an updated copyright file. Before uploading a new
revision i would like to ask you for your opinion about it and if it
comes into question for an unblock.

I have changed the GPL-3+ license for the debian directory to the GNU
All-Permissive license. My intention is to make the files in the debian
directory freely available for everyone without making the package
non-distributable.

I have also reviewed the Angband-License again. The only occurrence of
the license is in src/angband.h. Zangband and Angband license both apply
to this file. Therefore i have created two stand-alone license
paragraphs for the Angband and Zangband license so that the newly
created Files paragraph for src/angband.h conforms to copyright format 1.0.

A new debdiff is attached to this bug report.

Regards,

Markus

Dear release team,

a new revision of zangband has been uploaded to Unstable. Please unblock
zangband/1:2.7.5pre1-8.

There are no additional changes to my previous email.
