Hi Maintainer,

rejected, im sorry but this package contains mostly non-free stuff.

The file srcconf.c has the following license:
 This software is released under CDDL 1.0 source license for operating systems
 that have their full source code available under the BSD or CDDL licenses.

This is actually against DFSG, feel free to select between #5 and #6.
Additionally Debian does *not* have the full source code as BSD or CDDL.
And last, but not least, one would need to check if this code ever gets
linked to a GPL licensed file, because that would make it
non-distributable then.

And then we have srcconf_solaris.inc and others stating 
#define COPYING2 Copyright (C) Hannu Savolainen and Dev Mazumdar
2000-2006. All rights reserved.

which basically means "no rights".

But worst, you missed the most important "DO NOT UPLOAD" before you
uploaded in their COPYING file:

This source tree is reserved for internal use by 4Front Technologies and
by registerd contributors of Open Sound System. You have no right to
redistribute this version or to use it for any other purpose than
developing OSS itself.

Or did you ever read EULA?

oss4, in the current state, cant go into any part of Debian.

bye Joerg
