When adding LICENSE tags for Free software, please make sure that the tag is listed in DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES. (Hopefully this problem would show up when you do the test build prior to committing anyway :-) Artistic 2.0 is both Open Source and free and Artistic (1) is only Open Source (but not declared non-free): http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/index_html#ArtisticLicense http://www.opensource.org/licenses/artistic-license-1.0.php If the tag isn't in DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES, please (in the case of Free-ish software) either add it or instead raise the issue on tech-pkg. Having LICENSE set to something not in DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES breaks automatic builds and updating. (Of course, if the software isn't free, a broken build is the right answer.) (This was triggered by running pkg_rolling-replace on a machine that runs basically only apache/trac/svn/pgsql, and it errored out: ===> Cleaning for p5-DBD-postgresql-2.13.1 ERROR: This package has set PKG_FAIL_REASON: ERROR: p5-DBD-postgresql-2.13.1 has an unacceptable license: artistic-2.0. ERROR: To view the license, enter "/usr/bin/make show-license". ERROR: To indicate acceptance, add this line to /etc/mk.conf: ERROR: ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES+=artistic-2.0 *** Error code 1 I ran into this with some other package a few days ago.)
