SystemC™ is a language built in standard C++ by extending the language
with the use of class libraries. SystemC addresses the need for a system
design and verification language that spans hardware and software.

SystemC is listed among Fedora Electronic Lab (FEL) packages.

I noted that you posted to fedora-devel-list regarding the questionable license.
 I'm not quite sure why this was submitted for review when the license was known
to be problematic, but I'll have this ticket block FE-Legal now.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-07-10 20:48:01 UTC
For the record, this license (as-is) is non-free. I emailed Chitlesh a list of
proposed changes to take to upstream that would make the license free.

I'll closing this bug as CANTFIX.

Hello All!

Here are some news related to SystemC:


In 2016 Accellera re-licensed all SystemC supplemental material under the Apache 2.0 License. Access to some previous releases of SystemC material may still require acceptance of the terms of the SystemC Open Source License while the process of updating license statements is underway. Please contact the Accellera office if you have any questions.


So if anyone is brave enough, then it's possible to continue, since this package is no longer blocked by legal issues.
