Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202518
macutils has a bad license and should be removed
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:17:28 EDT
This bug is being filed as part of the FSF compatible licensing audit:
macutils has no license. It has no copyright.
However, the code it is derived from does say:
(c) 1984 Brown University
* may be used but not sold without permission
Thus, macutils really really really needs to die. Yesterday, even.
Nothing depends on macutils. Please remove this package from the distribution
and CVS as soon as possible.
Yeah, it's fine with me. CC'ing rel-eng.
Nuked from the collection and comps.
Spot, want to make an announcement regarding why it was removed?
