Description mejiko 2013-05-26 05:53:24 EDT
Hello. Sqlite license is public domain, no copyright restriction. License URI: https://www.sqlite.org/copyright.html but Sqlite documentation license is unclear. Its not "code", this is document. I think that this documant is not public domain, Its non-free and not distributable. If "code" including "document", Its no problem (This document is public domain), I closed this bug. If this document is not public domain, I suggest that: 1. Remove document and rebuild. 2. replace fedora free (acceptable licensed) documents. 3. contact upstream author. 4. Remove fedora repos. Thanks. Reference: https://www.sqlite.org/different.html

From my communication with upstream: > Many years ago, there were pieces of documentation of unknown provenance. > But all of that has been removed now. The SQLite documentation, as with > the SQLite source code, is public domain. We have in our firesafe signed > affidavits from all documentation authors releasing their work into the > public domain. Also the page http://www.sqlite.org/copyright.html has been changed to reflect current status.
