Fedora Merge Review: nfs-utils-lib
Initial Owner: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
The SunRPC licensing is now replaced entirely by the BSD license, with explicit permission from Sun.
Reopening. No one did a review here!
oops... sorry about that... I though this was about the licensing problems...
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.
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.
