Description mejiko 2012-12-13 05:40:36 EST
Hello.

fRaBs package included non free addons. 

Addon: Claudio Addon (See /usr/share/fRaBs/addon/claudio/claudio.lsp)

This addon license is "non-commercial use only". Its non-free.
Note: This is content, not code.


Suggests:

1. Remove Claudio Addon and repack.
2. Remove Fedora repos.

Thanks.

Blocked FE-Legal, This is license problem.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2012-12-17 11:33:03 EST
Thanks for reporting this!

It turns out the removing the claudio addon completely breaks abuse as many other parts have started depending on it over time, see:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=648272

Therefor the best way forward is retiring fRaBs + abuse and removing it from any future Fedora releases.

I've run through the entire retire procedure as described here:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life

The ticket for blocking it from inclusion in future releases is here:

Closing.

In addition to "non-commercial", the license appears to say that non-commercial use and modification is okay, but any distribution requires permission.
