You are right, of course. It was a slip to choose one license instead
of just saying "open source".

I expected that to be the case for the actual files installed and for
the Desktop CD. I was thinking of was the extra packages that are put
on the alternate install CD/the DVD - I understood that popcon was
used to determine which to put on there to fill up the space.
Thanks for your help,
