Description mejiko 2013-08-30 12:30:21 UTC
Hello.

tcl-trf included non-free code, non-free documents, and binary-blob.


Files:


trf2.1.4/win/msvcrt.dll

This file is binary-blob, no source. and license is proprietary EULA (but I can't view and check this EULA.), I think that this is non-free. (populer "EULA" is very very restrictive license terms, and non-free. I think.) 

See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/259403/en


I think that violate Fedora Packaging Guidelines.

See: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines?rd=Packaging/Guidelines#No_inclusion_of_pre-built_binaries_or_libraries



trf2.1.4/doc/paintless-guide-to-crc.txt

This file is redistrubutable, but do not allow modify.


Question: Is this file is "content" ? 

If this is content, no problem. (I suggest that fixing license tag).
If this is not content, This is non-free.


Suggests:

1. Remove non-free code, and rebuild.

2. Replace fedora free (Fedora acceptable licensed) files.

3. Remove fedora repos.

Thanks.
