Description Rakesh Pandit 2008-08-14 18:19:43 UTC
txt2rss is a shell script that parses a simple txt file (in a simple
format) and convert it to RSS feed file. Simple to use and intuitive,
you need to set up a config file with parameter like webmaster's name,
link of the site and others, after you just call the script with
options like <input file> and a <output file>.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-08-15 22:40:09 UTC
There is absolutely no mention of anything license-related in the source code.  All we have is the upstream web site, but it's been long enough since this has come up that I don't recall if that's sufficient.

While I ask the right people, could you ask upstream to at least mention "GPLv3" somewhere in their code, and if possible to actually follow the suggestions in the GPL and put a copy of it in the tarball/zip and the proper license block in the code?

Comment 2 Rakesh Pandit 2008-08-16 04:57:41 UTC
Informed upstream. Waiting for response.

I have confirmed about version here.

Comment 3 Rakesh Pandit 2008-08-27 01:51:14 UTC
Confirmed upstream, that it is GPLv3. A license block will shortly be on scripts.

Comment 5 Rahul Sundaram 2008-09-02 13:31:33 UTC
I haven't done a scratch build but otherwise looks sane. The only problem I see is the lack of the license text within the package. You MUST include a copy of the license. This is recommended by the guidelines and mandated by the GPL license

Also as a recommendation, we need a man page.

Comment 6 Rakesh Pandit 2008-09-02 15:54:16 UTC
I have reported upstream that they should include license file in there source.
http://code.google.com/p/txt2rss/issues/detail?id=4 Upstream has confirmed that it will be included ASAP.

I do not consider these issues as blockers but rather in a SHOULD list.

between I have added a man page and submitted it upstream as well.
