Fedora Merge Review: nfs-utils-lib

Initial Owner: steved@redhat.com

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2009-04-01 08:33:46 UTC
* License:

libnfsidmap is "BSD".

librpcseggss is "BSD" and "Sun RPC", which is a "bad license" according to the Fedora Licensing Guidelines:


* Static libraries must be moved into a -static subpackage
according to the guidelines:

> Requires(postun): /sbin/ldconfig
> Requires(pre): /sbin/ldconfig

These are automatically added by rpmbuild, because -p /sbin/ldconfig is specified for the scriptlets.

> Requires: libgssglue, openldap

These ought to be removed in favour of the automatically added SONAME dependencies.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-05-20 17:43:21 UTC
The SunRPC licensing is now replaced entirely by the BSD license, with explicit permission from Sun.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-06-10 13:36:17 UTC
Reopening. No one did a review here!

Comment 4 Steve Dickson 2009-06-10 13:46:18 UTC
oops... sorry about that... I though this was about the licensing problems...

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2009-06-10 14:03:57 UTC
Well, there are some good review findings in the bottom half of comment 1. To add to that, the "Requires(pre): /sbin/ldconfig" is completely superfluous because the packages doesn't contain a pre scriptlet at all.

Comment 6 Jason Tibbitts 2013-06-15 04:41:50 UTC
This package has been dead for some time now, replaced by libnfsidmap, but it was never blocked or marked as a dead package.  In any case, there's no point in having this ticket open.
