Description mejiko 2016-01-04 00:20:59 UTC
Hello.

scipy included non-free image. 
This is "Lena" (Lenna) image. (DAT file)

This file license (Copyright) is non-free, and this content is violate Fedora Packaging Guideline.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Code_Vs_Content

Thanks.

Comment 1 mejiko 2016-01-04 08:48:56 UTC
I check source RPM (*.src.rpm) and source archive (E,g tar.gz, etc...).
Not Binary RPM (*.rpm).

Thanks.

Why non-free ?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 4 Thomas Spura 2017-02-09 22:23:02 UTC
Starting from 0.17, the image should be removed:
https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/issues/5739
https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/5162

So no current fedora should ship Lena anymore
