From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
is it possible to check via the rpm-license-tag and the package-dependencies if there are license incompatibilities?
eg. GPLv3+ vs. GPLv2only

i am not sure if all %{license} are proper filed,
some licenses are listed as "distributable, freeware, public domain, gpl, lgpl, ..." instead the correct version.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. repoquery -a --qf "%{name} -- %{license}\n"

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
# rpm -q --checklicensecomp packageA packagB
  license conflict GPLv3+ GPLv2only

Additional info:
the license tag should be filed correctly in the near future.

more GPLv3+
