Description mejiko 2013-09-03 11:31:02 UTC
Hello.

glassfish-toplink-essentials include 3rd party License text.

See: glassfish-bootstrap/legal/3RD-PARTY-LICENSE.txt

This license included Json license (Its non-free), and New License (Stax API).
but this licensed code is unknown.

Suggests:

1. Search there licensed code, license review, and remove or replace non-free code.

2. Contact upstream author.

3. Remove fedora repos.

Thanks

Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-09-03 20:16:40 UTC
This is a false positive. Nothing in this package is actually under the non-free JSON license, and the Stax API code is not present.

This "3RD-PARTY-LICENSE.txt" appears to be a "cover all the bases" sort of license text.
