Re: The future of Linux - architecture and package inter-dependencies

Yep, but in the previous question they explain that the licence isn't
allready OSI compatible:

QUESTION:

Does the Open Group Public License for Motif meet the Open Source Guidelines?

ANSWER:

No. The Open Group Public License for Motif grants rights only to use the software on or with operating systems that are themselves Open Source programs. In restricting the applicability of the license to Open Source platforms this does not meet term 8 of the Open Software Definition (http://www.opensource.org/osd.html).

That shouldn't be an issue, if openmotif has a [L]GPL incompatible licence
but is shipped as shared libs.
