Debian Is Still Working To Tackle ZFS On Linux Support
Last month it was mentioned by the Debian Project Leader that libdvdcss and ZFS could soon appear in Debian thanks to legal advice from the Software Freedom Law Center, but in the latest update from the Debian Project Leader, it doesn't sound as easy.
Neil McGovern, the current DPL, wrote, "I'm continuing discussions with various groups about this (namely FTPMasters, SFLC, FSF and hopefully soon the Linux Foundation), but it's a bit more complicated than it initially seemed. I'll continue to look at this, but I'm not guaranteeing any timescales for resolution."
The message is much more pessimistic than last month when it looked like the potential legal issues would soon be resolved, but at least for users wanting said packages you can easily find them via third-party channels.
