Description Imed Chihi 2005-07-05 04:16:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Red Hat/1.0.4-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The source RPM of krb5 (at least on version 1.2.7) contains two files:

1. krb5-1.2.7/doc/api/changebar.sty, and
2. krb5-1.2.7/doc/kadm5/changebar.sty

Which only show the following copyright notice:

"Copyright (C) 1990 by David B. Johnson."

without any mention to a license. This may be a concern for some OEM vendors shipping Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Checked on 1.2.7-28 (should apply to all versions)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 (possibly other releases)
1. up2date --get-source up2date --get-source krb5-libs
2. rpm -Uvh /var/spool/up2date/krb5-1.2.7-28.src.rpm
3. cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/
4. rpmbuild -bp krb5.spec
5. cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/krb5-1.2.7/
6. View doc/api/changebar.sty and doc/kadm5/changebar.sty

Actual Results:  No mention of the license in both files.

Expected Results:  A clause specifying a license (like GPL) for use and distribution clearly mentioned in both files.
