Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-10-16 14:24:07 UTC
While investigating the possible inclusion of a GPL'd unrar package (see Bugzilla 319831), it was discovered that clamav contained a RAR v3 implementation that was copied/derived from the RARlabs unrar source code. Eugene Roshal of RARlabs confirmed that they did not give permission for any RAR v3 implementation to be used under the GPL, only under the unrar license (which is GPL incompatible). We need to remove this code from libclamav immediately, in all currently maintained releases of Fedora (and EPEL, if branched).
Comment 1 Fedora Update System 2007-11-01 21:15:00 UTC
clamav-0.91.2-3.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 2 R P Herrold 2007-12-21 17:11:00 UTC
How does an update release address the question of a license issue? Shouldn't this not have closed?
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-12-21 17:14:44 UTC
It addressed it because I took out the unrar code from the clamav tarball, reported the issue to clamav upstream, and pushed a new update. :)
