Subject: Wrong license detection
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 730b
While I wonder that the license for M:I has changed, I talked to Adam and ask him about: <Sno|Laptop> Alias_: why the license of M:I changed from perl to gpl? <Sno|Laptop> and why the pod still contains "redistribute ... under the same terms as Perl itself"? <Sno|Laptop> I meant Alias__ <@Alias__> It hasn't changed <@Alias__> Where does it appear as changed? <Sno|Laptop> in CPAN - License: gpl <Sno|Laptop> in META.yml, too <@Alias__> File a bug report, it means that charsbr's changes to license detection have failed against itself :) I rate this bug as critical, because it could lead to massive gpl licensed perl modules, which meant to be perl licensed (would confuse people who look at the licenses ... like me) /Jens
