Upstream is tracking this issue: https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52704
Comment 2 Mikolaj Izdebski 2013-01-28 04:25:29 EST
Upstream hasn't done much about this issue. Moreover, their proposed solutions are unacceptable for Fedora. The first one was adding an exception to ship non-free profile (which they already did in a similar case of pdfbox) or to unbundle the profile from their distribution tarball and let anyone that wants to compile or use fop to download the non-free profile separately. Because this issue is important I would suggest not to wait for upstream to resolve this, but instead replace non-free color profile with a free one. There are some free profiles available. Debian ships a collection of zlib-licensed profiles (package icc-profiles-free) and Argyll Color Management System provides color profiles under AGPL.

Created attachment 735886 [details] proposed patch This patch replaces non-free color profile with free profile from icc-profiles-openicc package. It also updates package to the newest upstream version 1.1 (#885471)
