Do you mean that, or some other version? board@ decided not to put gnu-agpl-v3 in DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES, as noted in license.mk: # As an exception to the Open Source or Free policy, the board # of The NetBSD Foundation has decided that licenses that # trigger obligations from use (rather than redistribution), # such as the Affero GPL, should not be in # DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES. > By the way, if I add the above license to my Makefile I don't get an > error or even a warning that the license doesn't exist. Shouldn't it > tell you if it is an invalid license? Presumably you are talking about "license file not found" rather than "license name not in ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES". Yes, probably it should warn.
