Description mejiko 2013-10-01 06:37:23 EDT

SRC rpm is : perl-Net-Patricia-1.20-2.fc19.src.rpm

perl-Net-Patricia license tag is broken. (not vaild license tag)

See: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:LicensingGuidelines?rd=Packaging/LicensingGuidelines#.22Distributable.22

I see copyright notice text.

copyring notice file list:

A) Net-Patricia-1.20/COPYING
B) Net-Patricia-1.20/libpatricia/copyright

I think that "A" is GPLv2, "B" is 4-cause BSD License.
4-cause BSD License is GPL incompatible. (Adversing cause)

I think that this is license problem and non-free.

Note: GPL and 4-cause BSD License is free, fedora acceptable licenses.


1. resolve license problem (if this is license problematic) and fixing license tag.

2. Remove fedora repos.

3. contact upstream author.

Blocking FE-Legal, I think that this is license problem.
Comment 2 mejiko 2014-03-15 06:08:25 EDT
Changed to rawhide.

How it this bug current status ? 
Is this bug is resolved ?

Comment 3 Philip Prindeville 2014-03-16 13:10:08 EDT
Working on a fix, as per the Licensing Guidelines.

Will mark the Perl parts "GPLv2+" and the libpatricia part "BSD with advertising".
