--- Comment #6 from Ladislav Slezak <lslezak@xxxxxxxx> ---
I found the reason why the 2nd license agreement is displayed - it's because it
displays the license for the Tumbleweed OSS repository (from
http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss/license.tar.gz).

The repository was selected in the previous dialog. Actually there were
selected two repositories: OSS and Non-OSS, but the Non-OSS repo does not
contain license.tar.gz file (a bug?). If the OSS repo is not selected than no
license is displayed.

The behavior has been little bit changed recently as in the past Yast
remembered the confirmed licenses and did not ask again if the same license was
used later. But from legal POV that's wrong, you should always explicitly
confirm the license.
The license caching has been removed, see bnc#890968 for details.

There is a usability problem - that the dialog does not tell to which
repository the license belongs (bnc#899892) and the repo URL is not displayed
(bnc#899891). Fixing these two should make it obvious that it's not a duplicate
license dialog.


Closing as INVALID as it actually works as expected, I'll fix the two mentioned
bug to make it clear that it's OK.
