Description Ian Stakenvicius gentoo-dev 2012-07-11 17:15:48 UTC
The init script(s) provided in FILESDIR for app-admin/sysklogd has a license of GPL-2 but GPL-2 isn't within the LICENSE variable of the ebuild(s):

files/sysklogd.rc6 has license line:
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License, v2 or later
... and is used by the following ebuilds:
sysklogd-1.4.2_pre20061230-r2.ebuild:LICENSE="BSD"
sysklogd-1.5.ebuild:LICENSE="BSD"
sysklogd-1.5-r1.ebuild:LICENSE="BSD"

files/sysklogd.rc7 has license line:
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License, v2 or later
... and is used by the following ebuilds:
sysklogd-1.5-r2.ebuild:LICENSE="BSD"

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 .
