Hi Karl, funny, I related him to the main TL list because I thought
it is best if we don't do the license audit in each and every distribution
independently, but trust in TL following its guidelines. So doing
the audit in TL upstream is the best place.

But as you said, and I agree, it seems that we have anyway - thanks
a lot to first some Debian guys (Frank), and now Fedora - improved
the situation a lot.

Best wishes

Something which justifies having a really good cry.
