Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 856715
License tag should include LGPLv2+
Last modified: 2013-03-03 18:03:09 EST
Description of problem:
The License tag in the spec file of liblockfile currently contains just GPLv2+, and the liblockfile.so dynamic library is distributed under the terms of LGPLv2+.
According to Fedora licensing guidelines, the spec file should contain:
License: GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+
According to Fedora licensing guidelines, the full text of licenses should be included in the upstream package. I have already contacted the upstream developer with this issue.
