To be fair, and to spread the blame around, the FSF's decision that
CPAL is a free software license was also wrongly decided, as was the
Fedora Project's decision that CPAL was free for purposes of Fedora
(which appears to be my fault -- sorry Tom!). I believe Debian treats
CPAL as DFSG-free but whether this was a wrong decision depends on
whether a decision was actually made, I suppose.
