Description mejiko 2016-08-06 12:37:01 UTC

hplip included questionable licensed code.

File List:


This license is "hardware specific" license.
It is non-free, incompatible GPL license.

This is code (software), not firmware.

This problem already reported. (Debian)

I suggest that resolve license problem.

Created attachment 1188843 [details]

I removed files with proprietary license and disabled features using it (PCL3GUI2). Package was built in RAWHIDE.
