maven-jflex-plugin: GPL code linked with GPL-incompatible libraries
Last modified: 2013-01-09 16:37:33 EST
Description of problem:
maven-jflex-plugin is licensed under GPL (any version), but it links with GPL-incompatible code (at least classworlds, which is licensed under Plexus license , but it also likely that it is liked with CPL-licensed code of junit and some ASL 1.1 code somewhere).
1) rewrite the plugin from scratch (only ~400 lines of code)
2) remove the package from Fedora and port other packages not to depend on it
3) obtain GPL classpath exception from copyright holders (maven-jflex-plugin links to a GPL library - jflex, so the exception for this library would be needed too)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I think this is something that needs to be raised with upstream.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Package not needed any longer (dependency removed from qdox package).
Release engineering has been notified to block this package:
