|Subject:||Non-Meta-1.4spec compatibile LICENSE value|
I was wondering why the metadata exported by MetaCPAN and hence this page:
It appears that the license string "gpl2" is not supported by the Meta-1.4 specification , and so when the meta-1.4 document is translated to a meta-2.0 document, "gpl2" maps to "unknown"
Seems only the strings "gpl" and "lgpl" are supported with regard to GPL licenses in the 1.4 spec, and EUMM doesn't do you any favours and doesn't warn you about "gpl2" being invalid, and just passes the value through.
If you're lucky, you might be able to specify "gpl_2" and make EUMM generate a META.json file, which /might/ be close enough to work. ( THough I forget what you need to have installed to make that happen )
But as it stands, 'gpl2' is on neither the META-1.4 or Meta-2.0 Spec.
Hope this is useful.
