GPLv3 and Debian
In the next twelve months we are going to see a rather interesting
process take place in the realm of Free Software. One of the most
popular FOSS licenses extant will be revised to (an as yet unknown)
extent. Many revisions have been rumored to exist, including closing
the ASP loophole, making the GPL applicable and relevant in more
jurisdictions than just the US, and making the license more compatible
with other FOSS licenses.
We'll examine the set of changes which will be announced at that time
in depth, take a look at some of the comments and rationales about and
behind the changes, and then see exactly what those changes mean (or
at least, may mean) in the context of the DFSG.
