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.

You can make License as GPLv2+
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)
New Package CVS Request
Package Name: scanmem
Short Description: Simple interactive debugging utility
Branches: F-7 F-8
Cvsextras Commits: yes
note that the COPYING file doesn't matter. You should look at the source files
themselves. They do have the GPLv2+ language in them...
Built for rawhide with the correct License tag:
upstream should be kindly asked to update the web page to say that this
project is released under GPLv2 or any later version.
