The `LICENSE` file now shows correct license information Previously, the output of the "rpm -qi 389-ds-base" command displayed an incorrect License field with an earlier license, `GPLv2 with exceptions`. This problem has been fixed and the _389-ds-base_ package now provides the correct license information (the `GPLv3+` license) in its `LICENSE` file.

Since 389-ds-base-1.3.4.0-26.el7_2, the license changed to GPLv3+:

$ rpm -q 389-ds-base
389-ds-base-1.3.4.0-26.el7_2.x86_64
$ head -n 7 /usr/share/doc/389-ds-base-1.3.4.0/LICENSE
