Description W. Michael Petullo 2009-11-09 02:48:19 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.flyn.org/SRPMS/tex-cjw.spec

cjwltx is a LaTeX class for writing resumes, cover letters and other common documents.

This package does not contain a clear, consistent copyright notice. I have contacted the author and he has agreed on the LPPL in an email. However, I have not yet seen a new release referencing the LPPL.

Just a few notes:

Change Requires: texlive-latex to Requires: tex(latex).

If you're using braces around %{texpkgdir} use them also with %{buildroot}.

- Require tex(latex)
- Put braces around buildroot

A few comments as I look through these ancient review tickets:

The packaging looks fine; there's some stuff you can drop (Buildroot, %clean, first line of %install) on today's Fedora releases.

The upstream URL is 404 for me, as is the Source0: URL.

Not sure how the license comes out to LPPL; I checked for copyright statements and came up with the following (from cjw-latex.ins

    Copyright (C) 1997 by:  Colin J. Wynne <cwynne@mts.jhu.edu>

This file is part of cjw-latex, a collection of package files for
LaTeX2e, written by Colin J. Wynne.  It may be freely distributed in
any form---electronic, physical, or otherwise---so long as the
distributor provides this file in its entirety (including this
copyright announcement) and charges no fee (except for reasonable
recompense for the duplication process).  Fair 'nough?

I would also prefer that the entire source file `cjw-latex.dtx',
together with `cjw-latex.ins', be propagated instead of any one

Please feel free to improve on or alter any code herein as suits your

This file is beer-ware.  If you use it and like it, then you should
buy me a beer if you ever meet me. :-)

There are also files with copyright statements but no license:

This file is part of cjw-ltr, a class for creating modified standard
letters as well as German style letters under LaTeX2e.

Copyright (C) 1995 by Colin J. Wynne

This file is part of cjwoutl, a package
for generating outlines with LaTeX2e.

And so forth.  I'm not sure what that all comes out to, but I'm rather certain it's not LPPL.

Comment 4 W. Michael Petullo 2010-11-13 23:01:07 UTC
I have a personal email from Colin. He agreed on the LPPL and said he'd update the source files. I never saw the changes applied to the files and now they do not seem to be available any more. I will contact Colin and ask him about this again.

Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-07-27 18:27:47 UTC
Any update here? This review request is very old.

Comment 6 James Hogarth 2015-12-04 01:17:51 UTC
As per the stalled review policy please provide an update. If one is not provided in the next week this bug will be closed.


Comment 7 W. Michael Petullo 2015-12-05 23:01:28 UTC
Well, Colin did not update the source file. I still have a personal email from him, but that is all. I just sent another email asking if he would be willing to update the source files to use the LPPL license.
