Description mejiko 2013-02-03 05:21:53 EST
Hello. Qcad is CAD software, Source code license is GPL. But other files is *NOT* GPL license. (NON-FREE) See: http://www.ribbonsoft.com/en/qcad-downloads-trial File list: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/builds/show/F-devel-i386/qcad/0/22.214.171.124/17.fc18/i686 This problem is already reported (Debian BTS). Seggests: 1. Replace Librecad (review request is not find) 2. Replace Fedora free (Fedora acceptable licensed) files. 3. Remove Fedora repos. Thanks.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.
Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-02-25 02:18:31 EST
I have some packages ready for review soon for librecad, I think the best course of action is to retire qcad due to legal concerns. Alain, are you okay with this?
Comment 3 Alain Portal 2013-02-25 05:20:54 EST
Of course I'm not okay, but I have a choice?
Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-02-25 06:56:58 EST
Well, if you think there is a way to resolve the non-free licensing issues with qcad, I am certainly willing to consider that. The issue seems to be that all of the fonts, patterns, example libraries, and documentation are non-free. If all of these items were removed, it could remain, but I'm not sure how functional or useful qcad would be at that point.
Comment 5 Alain Portal 2013-02-25 08:06:36 EST
As you say, removing all non-free items will make qcad probably useless... Documentation was really usefull. Have I to understand that qcad have to be deleted from all branches and from Fedora repositories?
Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-02-25 13:49:23 EST
No, just retire it and delete in rawhide before F19 branches (which means, do it soon!). I think this would be a great candidate to move to rpmfusion. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life
Comment 7 Alain Portal 2013-02-26 11:00:31 EST
Package retired from rawhide. I'll try to suggest to rpmfusion, but I never contributed to this repo before.
Comment 8 Michael Schwendt 2013-07-15 06:29:54 EDT
I've completed the missing step 2 in git master: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life Has step 8 been done?
Comment 10 Richard Shaw 2014-01-15 22:33:44 EST
Has any of this changed with version 3.4.5? I have not been able to find enough specifics between this bug and the linked debian bugs to make an evaluation. https://raw.github.com/qcad/qcad/master/LICENSE.txt
