Oh, I must have misunderstood the license text:
Toggle snippet (7 lines) License to freely use and distribute this software is hereby granted by the author, subject to the condition that this copyright notice remains intact. The author retains the exclusive right to publish derivative works based on this work, including, but not limited to, revised versions of this work.
Does “exclusive right to publish derivative works” means that peopleother than the author may not distribute modified variants of iozone?So the license only permits use and distribution of unmodified copies?
Bummer :(
I assumed that this sentence would just be an assertion of the originalauthors’ right to change the code as they please without having to abideby the license themselves (in case they are no longer copyrightholders), but the word “exclusive” does seem to make this non-free.
My interpretation seems to be backed by what the author wrote, as quotedin the Debian copyright file:
Toggle snippet (14 lines) The last time I spoke with Norcott I asked him about the intentof the license. He indicated that anyone could use it and distributeit for free. The idea of the later sentence was to protect Iozoneso that if someone modified it, the original author would stillhave the right to publish future works that included any additionsthat anyone might have made. And, that all of the code that isin Iozone could be used by the original author in other projectsthat may or may not be freeware. Iozone's code is intended tobe freely available. It would not be in the spirit of the licensefor someone to take the code out of Iozone, repackage itinto a commercial package, re-license it or patent it, and thenprevent the original author of Iozone from using his own code.
“repackage it into a commercial package” again is a confusing statement,because Free Software can be sold. Would the sale of a mediumcontaining Iozone be considered a violation of the license…?
This is confusing enough to make me want to drop the patch :-/
Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

After negative response from upstream regarding the licensing issue, I'mclosing this.
