Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2013-02-04 23:56:01 UTC
Based on what files are being installed by the ebuild, the LICENSE variable should be:

    "ACE BSD BSD-4 BSD-2 tao? ( sun-iiop RSA )"

License files for "ACE" and "sun-iiop" don't exist yet, so I'll attach them to this bug.

(This package is really a complicated case, because a) there are different tarballs depending on USE flags, b) some of the source files are not being compiled, c) other sources are compiled but not installed by the build system, and d) some sources are compiled and installed, but then removed by the ebuild.)

@Licenses team: "ACE" looks like a free software license to me. However, "sun-iiop" seems to be non-free, because of this clause:

   You may copy, modify, distribute, or sublicense the LICENSED PRODUCT
   without charge as part of a product or software program developed by
   you, so long as you preserve the functionality of interoperating with
   the Object Management Group's "Internet Inter-ORB Protocol" version
   one.  However, any uses other than the foregoing uses shall require
   the express written consent of Sun Microsystems, Inc.
