Hi Jason,

I've updated the spec file and SRPM:

I've changed the license to MIT. Like you said both licenses are functionally
equivalent (it is also what Wikipedia says). Now rpmlint doesn't give any

It can surely be done, but it would require a lot of work and I don't think it's
worth it. Upstream isn't very interested on making scintilla a shared-library
and their recommendation has always been to static-link software using it.
Also, scite and scintilla are released together so I'm pretty sure using
different versions of scite/scintilla together will break things. The only
distro I know of that made scite/scintilla independent packages (making scite
dynamically linked) is PLD and it seems they are not doing it anymore.
Nevertheless, if you feel this is a major issue I'll try to fix it ;)

I see your point, but I'm very sorry to hear this. Though I haven't made any
comments on other RRs I've been following the discussions for a while
(fedora-extras-list included).

This isn't my first RPM but it's my first package for Extras so I'm doing my
best to get it right. If you think I'm not following any of the
PackagingGuidelines please let me know.
