Suggested patch

Description of problem:
The readline package in rawhide will be soon updated to new 6.0 release which changes the license to GPLv3+. As socat 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.
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 05:51:28 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Odd, I hadn't seen these before on "My bugzilla" page. Nor did I receive any emails regarding these. If it hadn't been for Steve emailing me these pointers, I'd still not have known. I'm active in fedora-devel and irc, please next time email me directly or ping me on irc before starting such a procedure? Thanks.

I will take care of the socat issues today.
