Description Ian Stakenvicius gentoo-dev 2012-07-11 17:21:29 UTC
The init script(s) provided in FILESDIR for net-ftp/oftpd has a license of GPL-2 but GPL-2 isn't within the LICENSE variable of the ebuild(s):

files/init.d.oftpd has license line:
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
... and is used by the following ebuilds:
oftpd-0.3.7-r3.ebuild:LICENSE="as-is"
oftpd-0.3.7-r7.ebuild:LICENSE="as-is"
oftpd-0.3.7-r7.ebuild:LICENSE="as-is"

files/init.d.oftpd-r7 has license line:
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
... and is used by the following ebuilds:
oftpd-0.3.7-r7.ebuild:LICENSE="as-is"

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 .
