Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2018-09-21 17:56:07 UTC
I just read the upstream ticket
https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/issues/3703

It looks to me that a non free lib [1] was compiled in the binary and the binary was distributed as free software.

Does that mean that we should add this license to portage and then ask the user to agree to it?
