Did you see my other mail on this subject? >> +Files: ./libs/pbd/dmalloc.cc >> +Copyright: 1995, Gray Watson >> +License: other-noncommercial-Watson >> + FIXME > > Above is BAD: We should get in touch with upstream, apologize for not > discovering it earlier, and if they are unwilling to change we must rip > it out also from source distribution. We already got in touch. Here's the conversation: 21:07 < adi> (at least Debian is pretty sensitive to this kind of limitations in licensing) 21:07 < adi> I had a look at the code, and I believe it's actually not in use. 21:08 < adi> The whole file is #ifdef DEBUG_MALLOC, and if it's set (it's not when building for Debian), it includes a file from /usr/local/src. 21:08 < adi> I hence believe that nobody is using this code anymore, because #include "/usr/local/src/dmalloc-4.1.2/return.h" would likely fail on every machine. 21:08 < adi> (face palm anyone? ;) ) 21:09 < adi> I guess removing the file from ardour (and possibly releasing 2.8.12, just to be sure) would do the trick. Answer: 23:01 <@las> adi: i'll just removed the dmalloc code 23:01 <@las> adi: its *utterly* irrelevant at this point in time 23:01 <@las> adi: its also not used unless you build with scons DMALLOC=true As I mentioned earlier, it's completely safe to rip it out. If we're in a hurry, we need to repackage the source, if not, we could probably wait for a release, but as you can see, we have no idea when this will happen. >> ./libs/surfaces/powermate/interface.cc >> +Copyright: Harrison Audio, LLC, 2007 >> +License: NONE >> + FIXME > > For above (and a few more currently tagged as UNKNOWN) we should contact > the upstream authors and straighten it out. I'll take care and forward your mail to upstream.
