CPL in debian?


Hi

Can someone give me some pointers wether the CPL is debian-conform?

I found one statement here, but I'm not convinced ...http://jikesrvm.sourceforge.net/userguide/HTML/license.htmlEspecially: If I develop a eclipse-plugin under the CPL using only CPL
and/or GPL software, may I put it back to debian?

Regards, Sebastian.

Well, Eclipse is in Debian which is licensed under EPL (a renamed CPL)
and it is in main and not non-free.

There were some discussions about the CPL on debian-legal@ mailing list.
In a 5 second google search I found this:http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2001/12/msg00141.htmlThere is a wiki page about the DFSG compatibale and incompatible athttp://wiki.debian.org/?DFSGLicensesNot much information. I know. But further google searching should give
you a more satisfying answer. If still in doubt please mail
debian-legal@ mailing list.

Cheers,
Michael

least for verion 3). See the blog of the Executive Director of the
Eclipse Foundation Mike Milinkovich:http://milinkovich.blogspot.com/2005/11/eclipse-and-gpl-30.htmlCheers,
