According to the license it is not distributable. Rehashing old problem
License does look stupid. Do we care enough about this package to hunt down an
old (possibly insecure) version that has a saner license, or is it OK to yank it
and just tell people to use rsync?
Back when rdist was more closed, there was an exception for Linux distributions
that was added to the license. But as of July 24, 1999 they changed the
license drastically enough to not cause a problem anyway. The newest version
of the license on their website is http://www.magnicomp.com/rdist/rdist-eu-
license.shtml which seems to cause no problems... Is there something (a new
document on a different server) I am missing here? From said license:
o use the Software in any way you wish on any computer regardless of ownership
of said computer;
o redistribute the Software in any form, including source and binary, to any
party with or without charging a fee;
o copy the Software for any purpose.
fixed in rawhide (added new license file)
