  1. Bug#423040: Source package contains non-free IETF RFC/I-D

    Severity: serious
    Package: linux-2.6
    Version: 2.6.20-3
    User: debian-release@lists.debian.org
    Usertags: nonfree-doc rfc

    Hi!

    This source package contains the following files from the
    IETF under non-free license terms:

    pkg linux-2.6 ver 2.6.20-3
    linux-2.6-2.6.20/Documentation/netlabel/draft-ietf-cipso-ipsecurity-01.txt

    The license on RFC/I-Ds is not DFSG-free, see:
    * http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=199810
    * http://release.debian.org/removing-n...-documentation
    * http://wiki.debian.org/NonFreeIETFDocuments

    The etch release policy says binary and source packages must each be free:
    * http://release.debian.org/etch_rc_policy.txt

    The severity is serious, because this violates the Debian policy:
    * http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-pol...ve.html#s-dfsg

    There are (at least) three ways to fix this problem. In order of
    preference:

    1. Ask the author of the RFC to re-license the RFC under a free
    license. A template for this e-mail request can be found at
    http://wiki.debian.org/NonFreeIETFDocuments

    2. Remove the non-free material from the source, e.g., by re-packaging
    the upstream archive and adding 'dfsg' to the Debian package
    version name.

    3. Move the package to non-free.

    General discussions are kindly requested to take place on debian-legal
    or debian-devel in the thread with Subject: "Non-free IETF RFC/I-Ds in
    source packages".

    Thanks,
    Simon
