* License issue
  Almost all files are under ASL 2.0, however

  - The following file is under GPLv3
    Would you check how this file is used?

  - The following files have some questionable (?) license
    Would you check how these files are used?

* Preshipped binaries
  - The source zip file contains many preshipped binary files
    such as .xlsx files. Would you remove these files?

* koji build
  - By the way rebuild failed on dist-f11:

I will close this bug if no response is received from the reporter
within ONE WEEK.

Comment 9 Sandro Mathys 2009-03-13 07:44:03 UTC
I apologize, I'm really short in time lately and this will probably not change until the second half of the year. (new job, searching a flat, moving in, a.s.o.)

Therefore, there's no update to this bug, I'm sorry. I know, that it's not a big thing to check with upstream about the licenses and the preshipped binaries (or to answer to this bug earlier) - but unfortunately, several little things add up to a big (i.e. time-consuming) pretty fast.

Anyone's welcome to help here or take this over if they wish to.
