Description Laurent Rineau 2011-08-03 09:59:10 UTC
In gcc, libstdc++v3 and libgomp are released under GPLv3, with a runtime exception. I quote:

"Under Section 7 of GPL version 3, you are granted additional permissions described in the GCC Runtime Library Exception, version 3.1, as published by the Free Software Foundation."

and also:

"You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License and a copy of the GCC Runtime Library Exception along with this program; see the files COPYING3 and COPYING.RUNTIME respectively.  If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>."

(Same wording in libgomp and libstdc++v3).

Hence the Fedora gcc package should ship the file COPYING.RUNTIME, but it does not:
$ rpm -q gcc; rpm -qd gcc | grep COPY

I have verified in the git master branch of gcc at ssh://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gcc that this issue is also in rawhide and F16.
