So I started looking at packaging Netomata (
) and came across something that
raises a flag. The author is also at a conference with me this week,
so I figured the face time would be a good time to request a change if
something is required.
The question I have, is does the 'All Rights Reserved' in each source
file conflict with the GPLv3 that they claim the package is released
under, and is it a problem wrt Packaging Guidelines.
In the header of each source file appears:
# $Id: ncg 335 2009-04-13 22:40:31Z brent $
# Copyright (C) 2008, 2009 Netomata, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
# Please review accompanying 'LICENSE' file or
for important notices,
# disclaimers, and license terms.
There is no mention of GPLv$ in the source itself.
