Since then it has been published under either the Artistic license or the GPL version 2. By version 1.60 (Oct 2007) the copyright situation had been largely resolved, except for the file afsquota.c. As documented in the RT ticket #28599, the maintainer clarified that the file was no longer in the public domain. However this was not correctly reflected in the Debian copyright file. This version attempts to accurately reflect the status quo.
