Description Dave Malcolm 2008-07-15 22:27:18 UTC
Spec URL:
YUI is a JavaScript library for building dynamic web sites.  It contains
low-level utilities and graphical controls.

I've attempted to follow the guidelines on this page, and taken MochiKit's packaging as a guide:

There's extensive documentation, which I've split as a subpackage since you probably don't want it around in a deployment situation.

Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2008-07-21 02:29:50 UTC
The spec claims it is BSD but YUL itself uses other components under different
licenses and the combined code cannot be called BSD. You probably need to split
up the individual portions (such as JSON code from Adobe licensed under MIT) and
package them separately and add a build requires from the main package. 

Comment 2 Rakesh Pandit 2008-08-24 06:01:18 UTC

Are you willing to continue ? Any updates?

The ticket is stalled. It has been 1 month +, I am putting it 'need info'.

Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2009-02-17 00:32:18 UTC
Sorry for dropping this.

I believe the code in question (the as-docs and as-src subdirectories) is ActionScript, and I don't know if we've got any way of running this within Fedora as is.

Do I need to delete the non-BSD code from the source zipfile, or can I simply delete it during the build process?

Comment 5 Rahul Sundaram 2009-02-17 02:36:12 UTC
As long as the source is distributable, it is ok to delete files during the build process.

Please clear NotReady from the Whiteboard when this review request is ready for a review.

Comment 7 Jason Tibbitts 2010-01-26 00:07:44 UTC
This has been marked as not being ready for most of a year now.  I'm just going to close this out.
