David Paleino is currently contacting authors of various contributed patches for JtR to clear up licensing issues for the Debian package. Indeed, having clear licensing terms for those patches will also be of help to other distributors, and possibly even for a "community branch" of JtR that I might start to maintain. David was asking the patch authors to keep the list CC'ed, referring to the pkg-john-devel list specific to the Debian package, but indeed this was not clear, which is why Romain initially sent his message in here. As the message was on-topic and I did not mind having it on this list as well, I approved the posting. The relevant discussion threads can be seen here (roughly one thread per patch author): http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-john-devel/2009-January/ My own posting on my preferred licensing for JtR contributions is here: http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-john-devel/2009-January/000232.html I'd like to thank David for doing this, and the patch authors for their willingness to help with it.
