Description Jakub Hrozek 2007-12-27 16:54:43 UTC
Spec URL: http://hrozkovi.cz/scanmem.spec
SRPM URL: http://hrozkovi.cz/scanmem-0.07-2.fc7.src.rpm
scanmem is a simple interactive debugging utility, used to locate the address
of a variable in an executing process. This can be used for the analysis or
modification of a hostile process on a compromised machine, reverse
engineering, or as a "pokefinder" to cheat at video games.

Thank you for reviewing the package! I'll fix the License tag as it's indeed
GPLv2+ (I got tricked by scanmem's home page..but the COPYING file in the
tarball makes it clear)

Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2007-12-28 17:54:04 UTC
note that the COPYING file doesn't matter. You should look at the source files
themselves. They do have the GPLv2+ language in them... 

cvs done.

Comment 5 Jakub Hrozek 2007-12-28 20:10:52 UTC
Built for rawhide with the correct License tag:

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-12-31 10:44:17 UTC
   upstream should be kindly asked to update the web page to say that this
project is released under GPLv2 or any later version.
