Description mejiko 2013-01-11 10:42:17 UTC
Hello.

boinc-client included non-free files.


Files:

boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/glut.h
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/glut_roman.c
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/glut_stroke.c
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/glut_swidth.c
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/glutbitmap.h
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/samples/glut/glutint.h
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/glutstroke.h
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/glutwin32.h
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/win32_glx.c
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/win32_glx.h
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/win32_util.c
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/win32_x11.c
boinc_core_release_7_0a/samples/glut/win32_x11.h
boinc_core_release_7_0a/api/texfont.cpp
boinc_core_release_7_0a/api/texfont.h

This code license is redistributable, but not allow modify.
because "Allowing modify" statement (example: "You may modify and distribute modify version" etc...) is not find.

Its non-free.

And, This is not "firmware" and "content", This is "code".

case example:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=892925




Seggests:

1. Remove non-free code and rebuild.
2. Replace to Fedora-free (Fedora acceptable licensed code) files.  
3. Remove Fedora repos.


Thanks.

Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.

Comment 2 Milos Jakubicek 2013-01-15 12:26:09 UTC
Dear Mejiko,

thanks for the report, I have removed those files from the sources (some of them have been already removed by the upstream in the meanwhile) and built http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4869842.

Thanks,
Milos
