Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 846720
python-webassets bundles jsmin, which has an unacceptable license

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Extract the RPM
2. Look at the license text at the top of the file /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/webassets/filter/jsmin/jsmin.py
License text includes an unenforceable clause: "The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil."
The license text must be one of the acceptable licenses specified on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing:Main
The upstream copyright holder for jsmin has repeatedly rejected requests to correct his broken license. This is not viewed as a resolvable issue, therefore this bundled code must be removed from Fedora.
python-webassets-0.7.1-1.fc18 has jsmin removed. The damage is already done on the older branches, so I'm not going to "fix" it there.
