Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2006-08-18 16:45:03 EDT
This bug is being filed as part of the FSF compatible licensing audit:

The cleanfeed license is non-free, and should be removed from Fedora:

Cleanfeed's license reads:
        This software may be distributed freely, provided it is intact
 (including all the files from the original archive).  You may modify it,
 and you may distribute your modified version, provided the original work
 is credited to the appropriate authors, and your work is credited to you
 (don’t make changes and pass them off as my work), and that you aren’t
 charging for it.

The last part about "aren't charging" is the killer, thats a commercial use

Please remove this package from Fedora, nothing depends on it.
