invalid-license LGPLv2+ with exceptions
Last modified: 2008-03-03 16:50:51 EST
rpmlint issues the following warning:
W: invalid-license LGPLv2+ with exceptions
whereas 'LGPLv2 with exceptions' (without the '+') is a valid license.
I think this is a valid license and there should not be a warning.
Example program which has this license is OCaml-Postgresql:
I tend to agree, but rpmlint simply includes the list of short license
identifiers from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing, "LGPLv2+ with
exceptions" is not listed there. Other similar missing ones include "LGPLv3
with exceptions" and "LGPLv3+ with exceptions".
spot, should those be added to the Wiki page?
Yes, they should (although, I'm not really aware of any LGPLv3* with exceptions
in the wild, they will probably exist sooner or later).
The Licensing list now has entries for LGPLv* with exceptions.
Ok, rpmlint's config synced in 0.82-3.
