fop: tarball contains files with unclear licensing
Last modified: 2013-06-24 17:27:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Upstream tarball contains several files with unclear licensing. For example following font:
"The K3 3 of 9 barcode font is available from:
Keith Dimmock states:
Unless otherwise indicated all downloads are FREE, no cost and no nag screens."
I really can't tell whether we can redistribute this font in SRPM or not.
This Unicode license is unknown to Fedora.
Luckily, we don't need any of these files. So I would suggest to clean the tarball and rebuild the package.

Clean tarball is already in lookaside cache. Please consider applying this patch and rebuilding the package. Thanks.
The patch looks fine.
In future please use archive.apache.org instead of www.apache.org.
I will commit the patch if you update the spec to current packaging guidelines and use archive.apache.org instead of www.apache.org.

Fixed in fop-1.1-2
I believe that this bug is fixed in fop-1.1-2,
which is available in Fedora Rawhide, so I am closing this bug now.
