Description Jochen Schmitt 2008-10-08 13:42:33 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.herr-schmitt.de/pub/fedora-ksplice/fedora-ksplice.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.herr-schmitt.de/pub/fedora-ksplice/fedora-ksplice-0.1-1.fc9.src.rpm
fedora-ksplice is a collection of shell scripts to use ksplice
in a Fedora environment.
Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2008-11-06 14:05:23 EST
The two included scripts, which seem to be the meat of the package, are clearly under GPLv2, yet COPYING is GPLv3.  This seems a bit confused.  Legally we're supposed to take the versioning from the licenses on the actual code, so GPLv2 is correct here.
Comment 4 Jochen Schmitt 2008-11-06 14:44:12 EST
Thank you for you comment. The COPYING file was created by the autotools, but I have noew corrected it on


Because I have create some new enhancement/bugfixes, I will create a new release next week.

The upstream README says GPLv3 or later... shouldn't the tag in the spec be 'GPLv3+'?

cvs done.
