I think that this package be affected by debian bug number "771102".
I suggest that resolve license problem.
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

Is this bug is resolved ?
No, it's not fixed. What can we do about this? Drop from repositories? I don't want this. So it's up to Legal team to investigate.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
I have asked the abduco upstream to resolve this concern here:
I have independently confirmed that the abduco code contains at least some code directly derived from dtach.
I've also reached out to Ned T. Crigler, the upstream for dtach, to see if he has any issue with us continuing to ship abduco with the added copyright notice and license attribution for dtach, while the abduco upstream considers their options to resolve the concern.
It is worth noting that the dtach upstream is not obligated to permit this, as the permissions in their GPL licensed dtach code were probably terminated when the abduco code (containing dtach code) failed to honor the terms of the GPL. If they do not explicitly permit this case (or do not reply at all), we will be forced to remove abduco from Fedora.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.
