I find the most time consuming task in the review process is the license
check. I use a combination of find/head/grep commands to try and
determine if some of the source files have differing licenses to the
stated one in the spec. None of my methods guarantee 100% license
detection, given the sheer number of licenses out there, although if we
could consolidate all of the methods reviewers use for this we would
have a nifty tool indeed.
Not sure if this is something which should be part of this package or
fyi, rpmdevtools rpm includes a handy 'licensecheck' tool.
That is indeed handy.
What are the limitations of this tool? Are there reasons that prohibit
it being listed as a tool in ? If not I'd be happy to update the wiki.
