libidn 1.x is LGPL v3, so the precondition for upgrading is that all dependant
packages are LGPL v3-compatible.  That's not the case currently; there is at
least one dependant package licensed GPLv2-only (elinks) and numerous which
don't have 
correct License tags.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2009-03-10 01:58:00 EDT
Hum. Should we revisit this now? 

Looking at the current upstream version I see in the README: 

"The C library (libidn.a), C# library (Libidn.dll) and Java library
(libidn-*.jar) are licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public
License version 2.1 or later.  See the file COPYING.LIB.

The command line tool, self tests, examples, and other auxilliary
files, are licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3.0
or later.  See the file COPYING."

So, I think you could have the devel subpackage LGPLv2+ and the main package with the command line tool, etc be GPLv3+. Does that satisfy the dependent packages? 

midori needs this updated to get idn support, which would be nice to have. :) 
I'll leave it to you if this is worth re-opening.

Major DOH!  Wow, what an idiot, I completely missed that.  Thanks a lot Kevin.

Building 1.9 to Raw Hide right now.
