Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 875044
maven-timestamp-plugin: License file not installed
Last modified: 2012-11-26 08:05:02 EST
Description of problem:
According to the license tag maven-timestamp-plugin is licensed under ASL 2.0, but the license text is not provided.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redistribution of ASL-2.0-licensed work is permitted only if a copy of the license is included. See point 4 (a) of the license.
Please include a copy of the license in the package to coply with the licensing terms.
Relevant guidelines for this situation:
Basically, ask the upstream to add the license text to their source tree, and if they do, include a copy of that text to the Fedora package (either as part of a newer source tarball or as an additional Source).
If they do not respond (or do not add it), you either need to manually add a copy of this license text to the package as an additional Source file, or if you are uncomfortable doing this, you need to retire this package.
I believe that this bug is fixed in maven-timestamp-plugin-1.1-5,
which is available in Fedora Rawhide. I am closing the bug now,
thank you for reporting it. A summary of changes is included below.
