net-snmp-libs included non-free files. See debian bug number "498475" datails.
I think that this package be affected by debian bug number "498475".
Question: Is this non-free files is "content" or "firmware" ?
I think that this non-free files is not content or firmware, Its code.
1. Remove non-free files and rebuild.
2. Replace fedora free (Fedora acceptable licensed file) files.
3. Fix License tag (If this file is "content" or "firmware").
4. Remove Fedora repos.
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.
This bug affected libsmi, See #901504.
I found typo (Comment 2).
corrent: bug 901504
Code Components included in IETF Documents can be used for any purpose
pursuant to an open source license.
Can I use code that is included in IETF Documents in my software?
Yes. Code Components (see Question 3.2) that are embedded or included in IETF
Documents published on or after November 10, 2008, can be used, copied, distributed and modified by anyone in any manner under the open source Simplified BSD License, as described in Questions 3.2 and 3.3.
What is meant by “Code Components”?
Under the TLP, “Code Components” are any components intended to be directly
processed by a computer. This means that all forms of software code are Code
Components. The IETF Trust maintains a list of common code components at http://trustee.ietf.org/license-info/. The items on this list are automatically treated as “Code Components” for purposes of the TLP, but this list is illustrative only.
The current Code Components list explicitly calls out MIB modules:
"o Management Information Base (MIB) modules"
This is the license the IETF puts Code Components on:
It is BSD, Free and GPL-compatible. They are fine, as is, in Fedora, as long as they come with the corresponding BSD license.
That license text was missing, so I have added it to net-snmp in rawhide (and F17/F18).
It is worth noting that this licensing policy was not in place when Debian initially noticed this issue, which is why they came to a different conclusion at the time. Many thanks to the IETF for making this change.
