Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] xaralx is in debian (sort of)


today, xaralx was accepted into the Debian archive.

Great news.

Also, I just notice, if xaralx is GPL, and CDraw is not, isn't that an
illegal combination that would prohibit distribution? Not that it would
matter as soon as CDraw is freed...

I don't think so. Under the GPL you are allowed to give *additional*
rights to a licensee (but not restrict the rights in the GPL). See
the section marked "ADDITIONAL RIGHTS" in the file "LICENSE" which
explicitly allows linking with CDraw.

I agree with your point however that the sooner CDraw is GPL'd
the better, whereupon this nit will disappear.
