Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-01-05 23:27:17 EST
Description of problem:

The elfutils-libelf and elfutils-libelf-devel packages are mislicenced
in Fedora Core 3. They should be GPL, and are licensed OSL (which is
correct for elfutils and elfutils-devel, but NOT for elfutils-libelf
and elfutils-libelf-devel).
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2005-01-06 08:23:12 EST
elfutils (or at least portions) is dual licensed, OSL is preferred.
Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-01-06 10:25:38 EST
Unless RPM is licensed OSL, then having libelf as OSL is a violation
of the GPL. I further clarified with the author of libelf that indeed,
that portion of code was GPL and never OSL.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2005-02-07 15:24:52 EST
elfutils-0.99-2 built exactly as requested.

Anything else should be dealt with through channels other than bugzilla,
