Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-03-30 18:40:36 UTC
Creating a single bug for all packages since they're coming from JetBrains and should have similar license terms.

The issues we've noticed while reviewing dev-util/phpstorm (yet another package to add):

1. Some of the packages list licenses in all-of block, suggesting that the user needs to agree to all of them. This is probably wrong since only one license applies to the user.

2. Other packages list LICENSE="IDEA ( more-licenses... )". This also seems wrong since IDEA is a commercial license, and doesn't seem to necessarily apply with other licenses.

3. The packages bundle a lot of stuff. Licenses for all bundled packages need to be listed explicitly (unless you unbundle them).

I see no progress for most of the packages on the list, except for *-community packages.  Some of them also seem outdated.  Time to start removing them?

Now split into smaller bugs.
