Description Ian Stakenvicius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-07-11 17:15:38 UTC
The init script(s) provided in FILESDIR for app-admin/sud has a license of GPL-2 but GPL-2 isn't within the LICENSE variable of the ebuild(s):

files/sud.rc6 has license line:
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
... and is used by the following ebuilds:

There are two options here -- either LICENSE in the ebuilds should be appended with GPL-2 to cover the init script, or the init script should be relicensed so that it is covered by current LICENSE (this one is probably the preferred resolution).  See also bug 425702 .

@lu_zero there was no reaction since a long time. Please write us, if you still want to maintain this package.

I'd consider treecleaning it.
