I think everyone understands this now, but just to summarize: we believe the sFlow license (http://www.inmon.com/technology/sflowlicense.txt) is compatible with DFSG, but if the Debian community prefers the APL instead (http://host-sflow.sourceforge.net/license.html) then it's OK for OVS to use that instead.
We only used the APL for host-sflow because it was already OSI-approved, it met our needs, and we don't like paperwork.
