Description Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-03-31 13:43:03 UTC
gdbm carries LICENSE="GPL-3" in ebuild, but it seems to really be a mixture of GPL-2+ and GPL-3+ to me, so perhaps the LICENSE should be GPL-3+? I haven't fully checked, but given it's a GNU package, I highly suspect it's really GPL-3+. This is potentially affecting my license metadata choice in pulseaudio ebuild and bug 614154
