[Pkg-mythtv-maintainers] [Fwd: [ivtv-devel] Firmware licensing and
ijc at hellion.org.uk
Sun Feb 18 22:31:11 CET 2007
I've briefly scanned the license for the firmware and it looks to me as
if it would be ok for non-free. I need to have a more careful read to be
completely sure though.
If it is alright would you be happy for me to add this to the pkg-mythtv
SVN and would you be interested in sponsoring?
