I've started working on one of my to-do items that is usually very
low-priority : cleaning up X-related licenses in portage.
This is one of the last remains of the Xorg split from a few years ago.
X being a big hairy mess, those who managed the transition a few years
ago decided that each X package would have its own license file. Not
being a lawyer myself, I very much understand why they made that choice.
Now that the very few legal issues surrounding Xorg have been ironed
out, we can safely clean up all those license files into one : MIT.
So here's the list of license that I'm planning on killing because they
are - word for word - identical to MIT :
And here's a list of packages that use one or more of these licenses.
Please let me know if/when you've fixed them. I'll open bugs next week
for the remaining packages, and I'll just fix the rest myself within a
Help will be most appreciated
