Description at@altlinux.org 2005-04-27 22:52:08 MSD
Steps to Reproduce:
$ rpm -q --qf '%{LICENSE}\n' libgnome-db
Actual Results:  

GNOME-DB is released under the terms of the GPL and LGPL licenses. The specific
parts of the architecture are licensed under one of them: executables, such as
the GNOME-DB front end or builder and the components are licensed under the
GPL license, which means that any work derived from it must also adhere to the
terms of the GPL license. Libraries (libgnomedb, libgnomedbcomponents)
are, on the other hand, licensed under the LGPL license, which
allows for commercial applications to be developed based on GNOME-DB.
