Description mejiko 2013-05-27 04:47:27 UTC
Hello.

SRC RPM is: nyquist-3.04-4b.fc18.1.src.rpm

nyquist include non-free code.


Files:

nyquist/xlisp/*

This license is "non-commercial use only", Its non-free.


Suggests:

1. remove non-free code and rebuild.
2. replace fedora free (acceptable licensed) files.
3. remove fedora repos.

Thanks.

Comment 1 mejiko 2013-05-27 04:48:13 UTC
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-05-28 14:00:39 UTC
This code (all of it) has been relicensed under BSD. See license.txt.

The xlisp source files have not been updated to reflect this fact. Please ask the nyquist upstream to fix the source code to either explicitly state the proper license or simply refer to license.txt.
