Description Ian Stakenvicius gentoo-dev 2012-07-11 17:22:33 UTC
The init script(s) provided in FILESDIR for net-misc/dropbear has a license of GPL-2 but GPL-2 isn't within the LICENSE variable of the ebuild(s):

files/dropbear.init.d has license line:
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
... and is used by the following ebuilds:
dropbear-0.52.ebuild:LICENSE="MIT"
dropbear-0.52-r1.ebuild:LICENSE="MIT"
dropbear-0.53.1.ebuild:LICENSE="MIT"
dropbear-2011.54.ebuild:LICENSE="MIT"
dropbear-2012.55.ebuild:LICENSE="MIT"

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 .
