Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 511306
devtodo should build with compat-readline5-devel

Description of problem:
The readline package in rawhide will be soon updated to new 6.0 release which changes the license to GPLv3+. As devtodo is GPLv2, it should be built with the older readline (packaged in compat-readline5) to avoid licensing incompatibility or switched to libedit which is compatible with GPLv3, but doesn't support UTF-8.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Still linked with readline6.
I asked the author if the code could be relicensed as GPLv2+ or GPLv3 to solve the issue.
Licensing terms of devtodo weren't very clear, it's possible that the GPLv2-only license was chosen unintentionally.
I have taken over this package, and reassigned this bug to myself.
I will look into this soon, and maybe patch (if still nessecary).
devtodo-0.1.20-8.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
devtodo-0.1.20-8.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
I have applied the patch suggested by Miroslav Lichvar, thank you very much!
