Well in terms of debian packaging that doesn't work, but that's not
the issue. Technically nothing, but the bit of the GPL that says the
dist must include the scripts used to compile the source is what I was
I think it'd be perfectly reasonable for the xemacs developers to
reject this as not a violation of the GPL. I can see both sides, but
I wanted to bring it up in case people did find it a violation it
could be corrected.
Another person brought up that there are source packages available.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only available "source form" is cvs.
Is this not correct?
