They are not quite "open source"

They are not quite "open source" unfortunately :-( 7-zip uses a proprietary plugin to unpack RAR files and this "FastStone Capture" is "shareware":

"3. Restrictions on Use

This software must not be decompiled, disassembled, reverse engineered or otherwise modified."

Where do you find this information? When

Where do you find this information?
When I was on Debian, I was allowed to install 7-zip without adding different type of repository.

Everything in 7-Zip is free, except

Everything in 7-Zip is free, except for the RAR (and maybe this FastStone capture thing). Hence, there is a free version of 7-Zip in Ubuntu universe (http://packages.ubuntu.com/feisty/utils/p7zip-full)

The 7-zip issue is nowadays acknowledged

The 7-zip issue is nowadays acknowledged even on http://7-zip.org/ frontpage. And as mattflaschen points out distros usually ship 7-zip without the RAR part. This "FastStone Capture" had the copyright info in a text file inside the zip they distribute (I have forgotten the exact name of the text file).
