Description Richard Fontana 2013-09-30 21:52:01 UTC
The license tag for libdb incorrectly fails to mention Sleepycat. This error was introduced via Bug 886838. Defer to Fedora Legal re whether the license is best expressed as 'Sleepycat' or 'Sleepycat and BSD' or 'Sleepycat and LGPLv2' or something else, but Sleepycat should clearly be included.

Comment 1 Richard Fontana 2013-09-30 21:54:21 UTC
Blocking FE-Legal given the above, though this is a minor issue.

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2013-10-09 06:52:28 UTC
libdb-5.3.28-1.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.

Comment 3 Jan Staněk 2013-10-09 06:59:04 UTC
I added Sleepycat to the license list (now it states "BSD and LGPLv2 and Sleepycat").
