Hello.

kde-baseapps included non-free files.
Please see GNU Savannah bug number "39678" datails.

I think that this package be affected by GNU Savannah bug number "39678".

Suggests:

1. Remove non-free files and rebuild.

2. Replace fedora free (fedora acceptable licensed) files.

3. Remove fedora repos.

Thanks.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.

To avoid having to click around for details:

bug #39678: kdebase: kdepasswd is possibly non-free

--------------------------------------------

Reported to KDE [1]. I'll give it some time before I put effort into repackaging. 
[1] https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=323427

--------------------------------------------

In package kdebase, the file apps/kdepasswd/kdepasswd.cpp has a notice in the header with an X11 style license: 

...

But the "about" data in the code says that it falls under the (non-free) Artistic License:

    KAboutData aboutData("kdepasswd", 0, ki18n("KDE passwd"),
            KDE_VERSION_STRING, ki18n("Changes a UNIX password."),
            KAboutData::License_Artistic, ki18n("Copyright (c) 2000 Geert Jansen"));

As per https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=323427#c6 the author confirmed that the MIT license applies. (See e-mail attached to the upstream Bugzilla.)

The reason this was not changed in the KAboutData is probably that there is no KAboutData::License_MIT.
