Question: Which is CC license type and license version ?

If "CC" is "CC-BY-SA" or "CC-BY", Its OK. (no problem)

But later version (supertuxkart-0.7.3-1.fc18.src.rpm, Fedora 18) is fixed.

See: supertuxkart-0.7/data/tracks/scotland/License.txt



Suggests:

1. Upgrade to 0.7.3-1 or later (e.g: 0.8) version.

2. Replace to fedora-free file.

3. Remove Fedora repos.


Thanks.

Comment 1 mejiko 2013-01-04 11:25:28 UTC
Blocking FE-Legal, This isa license problem.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-01-04 14:54:28 UTC
So, the only issue that needs to be resolved is that of the licensing on
data/music/kart_grand_prix.ogg. I agree that CC is ambiguously unclear here. Jon, can you try to get upstream to identify which CC license is in use?

For all the rest of the issues, the fact that the licensing has been changed in later releases (but the files themselves have not) means that we can consider the earlier versions to be under the new licenses. Additionally, we do not require that all Fedora releases be updated to reflect licensing changes (except in extraordinary circumstances), as long as Rawhide (and unreleased Fedora branches) get the changes.

I'll leave this open for data/music/kart_grand_prix.ogg.

Comment 3 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-01-23 19:52:14 UTC
Will do, posted to forum, will post back here when I have an answer.

Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-02-01 14:42:19 UTC

It's CC-BY-SA 3.0, and updated in svn trunk.  Should I note this in the spec, in an included file for %doc, or both?

Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-02-02 00:48:53 UTC
Both, please, in rawhide. Then close this out. No need to push an update for this, but if you push an update for other reasons, incorporate this licensing fix.

Comment 6 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-02-04 17:16:01 UTC
Done.  Oh, and BTW, don't forget to make changelog entries. ;)

Re-open this bug.

Why is that ? I do not think.

I think that later version is new license apply but earlier version is old license apply. (If not reflect new license).

New license is CC-BY-SA (Its free, acceptable), but old license is CC-BY-NC-SA (non-free, not acceptable).

Which is license apply ? 

Its confusing.

I suggest that reflect new license, or include clearly license statement, or upgrade later version.

Thanks.

Comment 8 mejiko 2013-05-04 09:22:27 UTC
Sorry, non-free "Skins" license problem is not resolved. (Comment 7)  but other non-free license problem and unclear license problem is already resolved.

Comment 9 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-05-06 17:29:16 UTC
If the file is identical, and upstream simply changes the license, then we can inherit the new license. We should indicate the new license in the package.

Comment 10 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-05-07 15:12:50 UTC
license clarification file updated, built for rawhide.
