The netrek licensing issue has never been fully resolved because people
have different interpretations for it.  In my opinion, the license is
completely free for any use and, therefore, is even more generous than
GPL or BSD.  However, other people feel that the "without fee" clause
restricts it to non-commercial use.  The only thing you can do is take
the copyright statements and clear it with the Mandrake people and get
their interpretation on it.  Note that you should send them all copyright

James, perhaps it's time to revisit this licensing issue and either
rerelease netrek under an existing OSS license or create our own.

Sorry, I don't use any RPM derived linux systems...

I don't think so.
