    I don't see that this is a serious issue. Not at the moment anyway. Debian have noticed something which might violate their terms of distribution, and as a precautionary measure they've removed it from their packages. If that removal was in itself against the terms of somebody's license, then they're in a no-win position so it doesn't really matter which evil they commit.

    Instead of pointing fingers and bashing Debian for doing things in a particular way, we need a nice mature discussion between the Perl and Debian communities, and the owner of the rights to perlreftut, and I'm sure the matter will be quickly resolved to the satisfaction of all involved.
