I was searching to find more information about the Fair License and found out it was
mentioned here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing:Main
The entry in the fedora wiki says it's FSF free, GPLv2 compliant, GPLv3 compliant but
I can't find any source for that (e.g. in FSF or GNU website like
). There's an article in wikipedia but
it's missing any citation towards these claims. The license is in the list of approved
OSI licenses as one can see http://opensource.org/licenses/alphabetical
doesn't say much in regards to the 3 claims.
The closest thing I could find is the fact that in an OSI board meeting the WTFPL was
considered redundant to the Fair License http://opensource.org/minutes20090304
FSF considers WTFPL a free software and GPL-compatible license
Personally, after reading the license, I don't think that the claims are wrong but
I'm not an expert and determining the status of a license through the status of
another license being used as a proxy could be risky.
Are there any reliable sources towards these claims? Is there a reasoning on why they are
mentioned in the fedora wiki article (and if so I'd be interested to know what the
reasoning is) or does it require more research before stating these claims?
