Description Stanislav Ochotnicky 2013-07-30 09:59:43 EDT
Description of problem:
werken-xpath contains ASL 1.1 as license in spec file. However as a comment notes the license has different wording. In other words...it's not ASL 1.1.

I believe the license should be investigated and added properly to Fedora licensing page. Blocking FE-LEGAL on this.

Full wording of license follows:
