Description mejiko 2012-12-18 09:40:55 UTC
Hello.

ax25-apps included non free software.
License is "non-commercial use" only. 
Its non-free.

Files: (Source RPM is: ax25-apps-0.0.6-9.fc17.src.rpm)

ax25-apps-0.0.6/listen/rip_dump.c


Suggests:

1. Remove non-free files.
2. Replace to Fedora-Free file.
3. Remove Fedora repos.

Thanks.

Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-04 07:46:46 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 11 Eric Christensen 2013-07-05 14:48:34 UTC
The fix doesn't appear to have been pushed to the repos.

Comment 12 Fedora Update System 2013-07-07 01:40:32 UTC
ax25-apps-0.0.6-12.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2013-08-05 17:32:23 UTC
ax25-apps-0.0.6-17.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/ax25-apps-0.0.6-17.fc19
