Description mejiko 2013-05-27 04:53:28 UTC

SRC RPM is: "bacula-5.2.13-9.fc18.src.rpm"

bacula included non-free code.



This code license is "freely distributable", but do not allow modify.
Its non-free.


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




Comment 1 mejiko 2013-05-27 04:54:19 UTC
Blocking FE-Legal, This is license problem.

Comment 2 Simone Caronni 2013-05-27 09:47:21 UTC
Debian patch which removes sha1 from the sources:


This will prevent building Bacula without OpenSSL support but with SHA1 enabled. This is not our case since in Fedora it was always shipped linked to OpenSSL; so I think the fix is pretty simple.


Comment 3 Petr Hracek 2013-05-27 12:25:41 UTC
I have just another question.

In bacula package are also md5.c and md5.h files.
They should be also modified and removed, right?

Comment 4 Petr Hracek 2013-05-28 11:16:18 UTC
sha1 files were removed.
Makefile.in file was modified accordingly.
scm-commit (http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/scm-commits/Week-of-Mon-20130527/1028300.html) -> MODIFIED

In build log can be seen that sha1.c file is not build up anymore.
OpenSSL is enabled by default.
