Hi Maintainer,

rejected, due to copyright problems.
This packages source includes scintilla, but removed that codes license.txt, which
is a violation of the scintilla license. It is ok to copy code, if one follows the
attached license...

For you that means: Get upstream to fix its package, and then you need to list all
different licenses in debian/copyright. After both is done you can reupload.
Until then it is not distributable, not even for upstream...

bye Joerg

	The license is in http://scintilla.sourceforge.net/License.txt and I
think it should be distributed along with geany, as Joerg points out.

	I hope you can include it in the next release, maybe a 0.7.1 ? until
0.8 is ready? If this is an option, we may also include some more
translations (at least spanish was introduced after 0.7, by me).

P.S.: For those not familiar with debian procedures the forwarded mail
is a reject to include geany in debian for the stated reasons, of course
I'll re-upload once this problems get worked out.
