Description mejiko 2016-08-06 12:37:01 UTC
Hello.

hplip included questionable licensed code.

File List:

"prnt/hpcups/ErnieFilter.h"
"prnt/hpcups/ErnieFilter.cpp"

This license is "hardware specific" license.
It is non-free, incompatible GPL license.

This is code (software), not firmware.


This problem already reported. (Debian)

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=816870


I suggest that resolve license problem.


Thanks.

Patch

I removed files with proprietary license and disabled features using it (PCL3GUI2). Package was built in RAWHIDE.
