Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2020-07-15 07:46:59 UTC
Debian asked for clarification on license terms back in 2013, no response.

https://packagestest.gentoo.org/packages/dev-perl/Data-Diver/reverse-dependencies

Indicates no reverse dependencies, so I move to drop this from tree.

    Unfortunately when this package was added back in 2013, it doesn't
    seem the license information was checked. Unfortunately, no upstream
    license declarations exist, and upstream have been unresponsive as to
    even informally stating a license, and subsequently we can't have this
    in ::gentoo.
