Description mejiko 2012-12-18 04:32:33 EST
Hello.

alpine included non free software 
This file is licensed under "non-commercial use only".
It is is non-free. 

Files: (Source RPM is: alpine-2.02-3.fc17.src.rpm)

re-alpine-2.02/pico/msmem.c


Suggests:

1. Remove non-free files.
2. Replace to Fedora-Free file.
3. Remove Fedora repos.

Thanks.
Comment 1 mejiko 2012-12-18 04:35:28 EST
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.
Comment 2 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2012-12-18 08:29:31 EST
Thanks for the report. As it appears msmem.c is only used for the Windows build, I'll get the non-free file removed.

As the code is not used in the Linux binary, I do not see why this should block FE-Legal.
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-12-18 10:07:42 EST
Agreed. Just remove the non-free file from the source tarball and make a "clean" tarball, this will resolve the issue.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2012-12-18 10:19:36 EST
the file in question should still be redistributable,  so why the need to remove it?

This file is licensed under "non-commercial" use only. (This license is not allow use any purpose, including commercial use, commercial redistribute, etc...)

Its not OK.
Comment 7 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-12-19 10:35:07 EST
There is enough of a gray area here as to whether distribution of that code could fall into the area of commercial use that I'd rather be safe than sorry.
Comment 8 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2012-12-20 09:35:02 EST
I'm going to do an update, but can't right now due to other responsibilities. Soon though.
