Subject: Incorrect FSF address in license file
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.1k
The LICENSE file contain the full GPL text, with the following address: 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA The address of the FSF in that file is incorrect and should be changed. The new address of the FSF is: 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA Could you change the LICENSE file to contain a copy of the latest GPLv1 with their new address for a future release? d-licenses/gpl-1.0.txt Note that the address appears in fact twice in the license text, an that the only differences between your copy and the one linked above are: - the addresses - some white spaces This is considered a potential legal issue for some distributors (at least for Fedora, where I'm about to submit Socket::Netlink for inclusion). Thanks. PS: I realize this is the 3rd bug report I am opening about this subject for your modules, and I am terribly sorry for spamming your inbox. The Fedora policies require us to contact upstream about this issue though, and publicly archived bug reports have always felt better to me than private emails. Sorry again for the inconvenience.
Fixed in latest release. -- Paul Evans
