Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-04-25 14:46:18 UTC
Only one problem here. There is not specified license by upstream. Please tell me, where you find it or ask upstream.

Comment 3 Shakthi Kannan 2010-04-26 04:07:11 UTC
I have actually enquired the same to upstream, and awaiting a response. Will update as soon as I get a reply from upstream.

Thanks for your reply.

Without license the review can't pass. Ping me when upstream answer.

Comment 5 Shakthi Kannan 2010-04-28 16:28:38 UTC
Haven't yet received a reply from upstream. In the CPU.xs file, it has been mentioned that:

  All code contained herein in free to use and edit under the same licence as Perl itself.

So, the GPL+ or Artistic License mentioned in the .spec file holds good?

Comment 6 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-04-29 16:33:28 UTC
And it also says they've copied part from http://search.cpan.org/~wsnyder/Unix-Processors-2.042/, which is proclaimed to be GPL+ or Artistic, but in code they mentioned GPLv3+ or Artistic 2.0. So now what? If you don't know about guideline for this case, then you should probably send an email to legal (fedora-legal-list@redhat.com)

Comment 7 Shakthi Kannan 2010-04-29 16:55:47 UTC
I was able to contact Marc Koderer at a different e-mail address (cpan AT marc  HYPHEN koderer dot de) and this was his reply:

"I am not the author - Matt (mzsanford at cpan DOT org) only transfered the package to me. But it must be released as "Perl licence". So far I understand the hint in CPU.xs.

@Matt: is SYS::CPU a dual licence code? I think I will add a header in the code if it's ok for you."

I am yet to hear from Matt on the above.

Comment 8 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-04-29 17:05:58 UTC
Well, I'd rather check with legal just to be sure. They've proclaimed they are using part of code from different module. For example perl is using unicode tables, so it must have also unicode license. I'm not sure about this.

Comment 9 Jason Tibbitts 2010-04-29 19:13:24 UTC
Easiest way to check with legal is to block FE-Legal.

Comment 10 Tom "spot" Callaway 2010-05-03 14:29:06 UTC
For this package, this is the appropriate entry:

# Some code was copied from Unix::Processors, which is LGPLv3 or Artistic 2.0
# The rest of the code is under the standard Perl license (GPL+ or Artistic)
License: (GPL+ or Artistic) and (LGPLv3 or Artistic 2.0)

Lifting FE-Legal.
