Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 892111
zeromq is non-free (licensed under AFPL) file included
Last modified: 2013-02-01 08:18:53 EST
zeromq included non-free files
Source RPM is "zeromq-2.1.11-1.fc17.src.rpm"
Files and Licenses:
License: AFPL and BSD
But BSD license apply is "project specific". (see "zeromq-2.1.11/foreign/xmlParser/*" datails.)
1. Remove non-free file and rebuild.
2. replace to fedora-free code. (e.g libxml)
3. Remove to fedora repos.
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.
Thanks for the bug report.
I can't find any reference, where this xmlparser is actually in use in the build log, e.g.:
Furthermore, these files are redistributed along zeromq ('redistributed' means bundled in the tar ball and provided for downloading on fedora infrastructure in this case.). As I see it, this is allowed as zeromq is allowed to use it under the terms of BSD, so I don't need to remove it from the tar ball before uploading it, isn't it?
I'd suggest removing them in %prep and then not using them (as we already do now AFAIK).
I wait for a final decision by FE-Legal before either:
* removing them in %prep and still ship it in the uploaded tar ball.
* removing them before uploading and request rel-eng to remove all tar balls, which contain those files from fedora infrastructure.
I agree with Thomas. If these files are unused, they can be removed in %prep, we do not need to make a new tarball. Additionally, RH Legal confirms that we can safely treat these files as being under BSD.
