Description Richard W.M. Jones 2014-02-04 13:10:17 UTC
Description of problem:

Matt Booth was doing the PackageWranger review of libguestfs and
we noticed there was a bogus license file (daemon/COPYING) which
asserted that the daemon was under GPLv3.  It is not, it is under
GPLv2+, and we have removed that file from upstream:

Normally I would ignore this, but because of bug 1061155 it
looks like we are going to do another build anyway, so we can
fix this at the same time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check out the SRPM.
2. Apply all patches (ie. do 'rhpkg prep').
3. Check daemon/COPYING file.

Actual results:

This file exists and says the daemon is under GPLv3.

Expected results:

This file should not exist.  The daemon is under GPLv2+ as
asserted in individual files and by COPYING in the top level

Verified with libguestfs-1.22.6-19.el7.x86_64

# rpm -ivh libguestfs-1.22.6-19.el7.src.rpm
# cd ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/
# rpmbuild -bp libguestfs.spec

# ll ~/rpmbuild/BUILD/libguestfs-1.22.6/daemon/COPYING
ls: cannot access /root/rpmbuild/BUILD/libguestfs-1.22.6/daemon/COPYING: No such file or directory
