Re: [opensuse-packaging] Licence issue with the Projects > security > nikto package
I have posted it there - but wouldn't it be simpler to reduce the number of
mailinglists (opensuse-bar is nearly unused) and to discuss that kind of things
in the packaging-list, too? There are so many mailing-lists...

Working on a w3af packe, I have recognized, that the nikto package have
a possible license issue. The plugins have the following licence lines:

While distribution seem to be ok within the full package, a proprietary
license is used. Is this license ok for opensuse?

Please ask on the opensuse-bar mailing list,
