[pkg-boost-devel] Bug#349209: boost: Boost Graph Library is non-free and undistributable in compiled form

severity 349209 important

It's my understanding that the code in the existing package is now covered
completely by the Boost Software License, meaning that it is distributable
and free.  That means that this bug is not release-critical: AIUI, the
current copyright statement in the package is correct but incomplete (since
some parts currently listed under a different license are now *also*
available under the BSL), which isn't a reason to keep the package out of
the release.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
