Description Karel Klíč 2012-09-12 11:59:13 EDT
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+.
Actual results:
liblockfile.spec contains:
License: GPLv2+

Expected results:
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.
