Created attachment 335588 [details]
nap license

The ebuild is currently labelled with LICENSE="as-is" which isn't accurate. The COPYRIGHT file in the package's tarball contains attached license. As far as I can see, it is used by no other package in the tree, so I suggest to call it "nap".

@Licenses team: This looks like a free software license to me. GPL incompatible though, because clause 3 is an advertising clause as in BSD-4.

Some files in the package are licensed under GPL-2+ or LGPL-2+. Since they're linked with code that is under the "nap" license, redistribution of the resulting binary is not allowed. Therefore the ebuild should be bindist restricted.
