Default Truecrypt 3.0 License

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hello everyone,
As I'm still the new kid on the block so to speak, and since I know
almost nothing about the legal side of things, I've decided to err on
the side of caution with this.

I would like to add the license for truecrypt-7.0 to Portage. Link is
here http://www.truecrypt.org/legal/license

Does this license look ok to everyone? If yes, I'm assuming it's going
to go in the same groups as the prior truecrypt licenses that are
already in Portage?

Thanks!

It says "TrueCrypt License Version 3.0" not 7.0?

> Does this license look ok to everyone?

It looks very similar to the truecrypt-2.8 license that we already
have.

I don't see any truecrypt* license in profiles/license_groups so far.

But to answer the question more generally: A new version of a license
should only be added to groups like FSF-APPROVED or OSI-APPROVED if it
has been approved by these organisations. On the other hand, for
groups like MISC-FREE, it is as you assume. There the presence of a
previous version is a good indication that the new version should also
be added (given that it's similar enough to the previous version).

The license version is 3.0. It's for software version truecrypt-7.0a.

Ok. Given this information, I will be committing this license along with
the new truecrypt version later tonight unless someone raises a concern.
Thanks!

On a related note, given their download page,
http://www.truecrypt.org/downloads, do you think it's necessary to fetch
restrict it? They only "suggest" to point to them.
