Zeus to Dunfell package license checking change

Anders Montonen


While upgrading our distro from Zeus to Dunfell, I ran into an issue where some locale packages blocked due to incompatible licenses, even though their licenses have not changed.
For example, the license of libgnutls30 is “LGPLv2.1+", while the license for libgnutls-locale-fi is “GPLv3+ & LGPLv2.1+”. In Zeus, this combination was accepted, but not anymore. Is this intentional?

I also think it’s a bit odd that the localization package has a different license than the library itself, though I haven’t looked if there’s anything explicitly said about this in the source code.
