Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 967736
nodejs SRPM contains patented code
Last modified: 2013-06-19 17:34:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Upstream tarball contains source code of nodejs dependencies, including openssl. openssl sources contain some patented code (RC5, EC, possibly more). I think that Fedora should distribute nodejs SRPM without those patented parts.
Luckily we don't use the bundled code at all so we can just delete the bundled copy of OpenSSL wholesale, avoiding the need to keep track of what's okay and what's not. I'm going to push a 0.10.7 update soon and I'll make sure the tarball is stripped for that update.
