Description Michael Catanzaro 2016-07-21 16:35:57 UTC
Description of problem: On a fresh install of Fedora, I expect no nonfree software to be installed. Unfortunately Lklug fonts are installed by default but presented as nonfree and 3rd party in GNOME Software.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.6-14.20090803cvs.fc24

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open software center

Actual results: Lklug fonts presented as 3rd party, nonfree

Expected results: Lklug fonts not labeled as 3rd party or nonfree

Additional info: You need to add a license tag to lklug.metainfo.xml. Right now it contains only a license for the metadata. If you don't include a license for the software itself, it gets labeled as nonfree.

Comment 1 Parag Nemade 2016-07-21 16:54:09 UTC
   Do you have example how to add it? I think the last and first time metainfo added to fonts packages, we followed guidelines that were present at that time and then there was no initiative to update it in Fedora packages.

Comment 2 Michael Catanzaro 2016-07-21 19:07:18 UTC
Um, good question. Richard on IRC suggested that we just need to add the project_license tag to the metainfo, but that can't be right as I've checked several other font packages, and none of them use this tag. In fact lklug's metadinfo file looks identical to that of other popular fonts.

However, I missed one thing: lklug is actually the *only* font package that's displayed on the Installed page in Software.

So I don't see what lklug can do. Moving this to Software for investigation.

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2016-07-22 14:02:50 UTC
So the best thing to do would be to add the <project_license> tag with a valid SPDX ID, but that really shouldn't be required as we do fallback to the Fedora license where it's not specified. I did work out that lklug isn't in the distro metadata (in /usr/share/app-info/xmls) in F24, weirdly. Looking at that seems to suggest that we couldn't generate a preview for it. I guess that's the root cause.

Comment 4 Parag Nemade 2017-03-14 09:25:32 UTC
May I know if we can get any fix for this?

Comment 5 Parag Nemade 2017-03-20 15:10:41 UTC
No response provided.

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2017-07-05 06:50:07 UTC
In F26 at least the license is presented as "Unknown".

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2017-07-25 21:57:40 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '24'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2017-08-08 15:46:06 UTC
Fedora 24 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-08-08. Fedora 24 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
