Subject: kfreebsd-8 - Incomplete licensing information
Date: Sun, 6 Dec 2009 13:44:28 +0100
Package: kfreebsd-8
Version: 8.0-1
Severity: serious

The licensing information in the copyright file of the kfreebsd-8
package are incomplete and missleading. It refers to
/usr/share/common-licenses/BSD, which is a 3-clause license. Also it
lists licenses of sources that are not actually included in the source

I found at least 4 different BSD-style licenses, one 2-clause, one
3-clause and two 4-clause licenses. Examples:
- xen/reboot.c: 4-clause with the following advertising clause:
    This product includes software developed by Christian Limpach.
- nfsclient/bootp_subr.c: 4-clause with the following advertising
    This product includes software developed by the University of
    California, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and its contributors.
- amd64/amd64/amd64_mem.c: 2-clause.
- dev/aic7xxx/ahc_isa.c: 3-clause; kind off I think.
