Starting sometime ago I see lots of failed builds due to
license strings not valid for exactly SLE_15_SP1,
giving no problems whatever for other releases, especially not
I'm talking about devel:languages:R:released, where a lot
of packages from CRAN are (semi-)automatically built.
One such package is R-acepack.
The spec file says:
License: MIT + file LICENSE
On CRAN that seems popular and up to now we had no problems
with that. Most of the failing packages use exactly this license.
The authors use a blank MIT license and add a file with just the
copyright holders names etc.
What is the intended reaction as a packager?
I would like to keep the License specified as intended by upstream.
Essentially this is MIT, so it should definitely be ok for OBS.
Of course (?) there is no such entry in https://spdx.org/licenses/
Thx for any hints.
