Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 613707
hplip-common subpackage must also include a copy of license text
Last modified: 2011-05-19 09:12:51 EDT
COPYING file is only included in base package, i.e. hplip.
According to Fedora Licensing Guidelines
the -common subpackage must also include a copy of license text.
Q. My package generates a foo and foo-libs package. foo has the license
files, and foo depends on foo-libs, but foo-libs doesn't have any
license files in it. What should I do?
A. You have two options here. You can either move the license texts from
foo to foo-libs or duplicate the license texts in both packages. Moving
the license texts is an acceptable option in this case because it
ensures that if foo-libs is installed, the license texts are present,
and if foo is installed, it will pull in foo-libs, thus, the license
texts are present.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
A copy of the license text has been added to the hplip-common sub-package.
