[opensuse-buildservice] Re: Licensing - CC BY-NC-SA

I've contacted the author regarding the Licensing, and she kindly
removed the 'NC' from the License.
Lucidity is now Creative Commons BY-SA. The reason why I asked this is
because on Fedora they don't accept NC, since packages with 'NC' can't
be pushed to RHEL. I don't know if this is the case with openSUSE, but
it's 'fixed' and the author kindly removed it.

There shouldn't be a problem in using OBS to package and distribute it
now. Already commited to OBS.

Thanks all.

@Darix - Thanks for the help and pushing the question to the legal
department, but it's been worked out between me and the author.

Dear people,

I'm asking this because one of my favorite metathemes for GNOME is
CC-BY-NC-SA. What concerns me is the 'NC' which I'm not sure if because
of it I can distribute it through OBS as a package.

Though this is a personal reason, I usually push some packages to
Contrib or other projects, since it's stuff I keep updated for myself.

Anyone could clear out this licensing issue around CC BY-NC-SA.

Thanks in advance,


nelson marques
