RFE: add licensecheck.pl script from Debian devscripts package
Last modified: 2009-10-06 05:57:48 EDT
licensecheck.pl is a very useful tool for reviewers (and package maintainers) and I think it'd be good to have it in rpmdevtools. Please consider adding it.

Looks interesting, thanks for the pointer. Some thoughts though, feedback welcome:
While most of the devscripts package seems more or less Debian specific on surface, I wonder if the scripts or a sufficiently large subset of them would also work on Fedora - in that case it would be a good idea to ship devscripts as a separate ("debian-devscripts"?) package instead of cherry-picking stuff to rpmdevtools.
licensecheck.pl could (should?) be patched so that it outputs a suggestion of the value for the License tag.
Ping, please add this ASAP...
Done upstream (along with annotate-output, checkbashisms and manpage-alert), will be in the next release.
Included in 7.4-1.
Could we get a F11 build, too?
I'll probably release 7.5 next week and push that to F-11+
