Comment 1 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2009-09-13 19:50:38 UTC
Updated to 1.9.0-rc1 in rawhide.

Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2009-11-20 01:16:39 UTC
rc2 was released 3 days ago. While we're at it, is linking to openssl really necessary? Pidgin can't link to system libgadu as a result since this would cause GPL violation.
Since, kadu uses qca for encryption, so this is a non-issue here. I'm not sure about the other two deps, ekg2 and gg2. Both claim to be GPL, so this can be problematic as well. Adding FE-Legal.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-11-30 23:28:02 UTC
Well, pidgin could add a link exception for SSL:

 * In addition, as a special exception, the copyright holders give
 * permission to link the code of portions of this program with the
 * OpenSSL library under certain conditions as described in each
 * individual source file, and distribute linked combinations
 * including the two.
 * You must obey the GNU General Public License in all respects
 * for all of the code used other than OpenSSL.  If you modify
 * file(s) with this exception, you may extend this exception to your
 * version of the file(s), but you are not obligated to do so.  If you
 * do not wish to do so, delete this exception statement from your
 * version.  If you delete this exception statement from all source
 * files in the program, then also delete it here.

Alternately, libgadu could use gnutls instead of openssl.

Comment 4 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2009-12-06 01:08:51 UTC
Updated to 1.9.0-rc2 in rawhide, sent question about openssl upstream.

Comment 5 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2009-12-06 12:04:01 UTC
Upstream says using gnutls is on TODO list, but that SSL isn't used in practice yet, so I just disabled it. This should fix any licence trouble.

Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2010-01-25 20:38:32 UTC
Closing this one out, please be aware of the licensing issue if/when you decide to renable SSL support.
