Follow-up Comment #3, task #7734 (project administration):


Can you tell us why that would be a problem?

After more research, the reason we ask is that the Pine program was
distributed under a license which had this kind of wording, and their authors
weirdly argued that this allowed to privately modify and distribute verbatim,
but did _not_ allow to distribute modified versions.
- Their position:
- A Debian developer commenting on the issue:
This made the software non-free.

That why we'd appreciate you change "and" in "and/or" - not in order to mimic
the ISC, but instead to avoid this possible license misinterpretation.
