I am wondering why the promise to waive or not assert 4d is only for the

extent permitted by applicable law."
I would expect people downstream of Fedora to get the same rights as the
Just been checking on the OSI licences and it appears that both the
MS-PL and MS-RL licences are now both approved by the OSI.
From memory, until Mono had an OSI happy licence, it wasn't allowed in.
As both MS-PL and MS-RL are OSI approved, does that mean that the likes
of IronPython can be now included into the repos?

Dear list members,
I would like to ask regarding licenses for the W3AF (webapplication audit tool) and its suitability for Fedora.
I would like to package w3af for Fedora. this software is python application bundled with several 3rd party python libraries.
It is possible to use system libraries for some of the dependencies, but for some of those it will not be trivial to separate them (that is probably reason why debian package bundles them as well).
1) How is it in such situation with compatibility betwen GPL LGPL other licenses if the software is
distributed de-facto in a source form ? Is it problem to bundle libraries ?
2) How the license tag in the package should look like?
Is something like this suitable for the situation ?
License: GPLv2 and ( LGPLv3 and LGPLv2 and GPLv2+ and GPLv3 and CC-BY-SA )
Attached is the list of bundled libraries which I was able to identify in the upstream tarball.
Thank you for advice.

Yes, that should be sufficient. I would encourage you to retain
documentation of that in the unlikely event of a dispute. :)
Regardless of arguments about whether or not map data belongs in
Fedora, I wonder what we think of the new Ordnance Survey OpenData
It seems to be Free (as in Freedom) to my untrained eyes.
More about the map data release here:
They have a rather peculiar system for obtaining this data. If you
are a UK citizen and resident, you can order (for free) a DVD
containing the data you select, which will be sent by snail mail to
your home. I ordered the street map DVD for my local area just to see
what I'd get.
[OT for Fedora] Hopefully if the license above is free, we can pool
the data that people order together and make it available in some more
