Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2019-03-28 18:25:06 UTC
AFAICS, components have the following licenses:
   program code: GPL-2+
   images: || ( GPL-2 CC-BY-SA-1.0 )
   texi2html.texi: Texinfo-manual

(For the images, the situation is slightly confusing: images/README says "These images are licenced under a double CC-SA (Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike) and GPL licence (see file COPYING in that directory)." images/COPYING.Attribution-ShareAlike confirms that it is not CC-SA-1.0 but CC-BY-SA-1.0.)

There are also some bundled components under different licenses:
   libintl-perl: LGPL-2+ MIT

So in short, the ebuild should have:
LICENSE="GPL-2+ || ( GPL-2 CC-BY-SA-1.0 ) Texinfo-manual LGPL-2+ MIT"
Comment 1 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2019-04-13 09:01:29 UTC
There are also some files licensed under the FDL (various versions). All of these are bundled examples in the test/ directory and they are not being installed.
