SRPM URL: http://benboeckel.net/packaging/ghc-MonadCatchIO-mtl/ghc-MonadCatchIO-mtl-

@Control.Exception.catch@ function. For this, it defines the
@MonadCatchIO@ class, a subset of @MonadIO@. It defines
proper instances for most monad transformers in the 'mtl'

#001 Please use "License: Public Domain".

#002 Why do you have text enclosed in '@' in the Description? Please remove it.

#003 Please change the permission on the .spec file and .tar.gz file to 0664.

> #001 Please use "License: Public Domain".

Ah. Oops. Needs an email to the maint to ensure it's valid for Fedora anyways.
> #002 Why do you have text enclosed in '@' in the Description? Please remove it.

Used in cabal description and Haddock uses it. Missed it here

> #003 Please change the permission on the .spec file and .tar.gz file to 0664.

This is my umask. Won't be a problem in Fedora's git or the lookaside cache.

I'll get around to this tonight hopefully.
Comment 3 Shakthi Kannan 2011-01-18 21:11:59 EST
"Public Domain" is a valid license for Fedora:


#004 Please post Koji builds for F-14, EL-6.
Comment 4 Narasimhan 2011-01-20 00:15:33 EST
Hi Shakthi,

We had similar issue with ghc-failure regarding the Public Domain license.


The resolution was to get the license changed from PublicDomain. Ben had contacted the author and got it changed.
Comment 5 Shakthi Kannan 2011-01-20 00:29:29 EST
I have sent an e-mail to the author of the project requesting for license change/clarification from PublicDomain. Awaiting a reply.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2011-01-28 06:07:10 EST
As earlier discussed on Fedora haskell-devel list,
dropping libraries for now from the toplevel of Haskell-pkg-reviews,
so we, the Haskell SIG, can focus more on getting Haskell apps into Fedora.

To get you library back under the tracker please submit a bin or binlib
package that depends on this library and make this bug block that package
review.  It is a good idea to submit full stacks of packages and then
to add the toplevel program to the tracker.
Comment 7 Shakthi Kannan 2011-02-06 22:00:43 EST
Upstream has updated license to BSD3 with a new release Can you please update your .spec file and make a new package release?
