Ciaran's really not making homework up for gentoo. Why, remi stated himself that
we have homework to do(and we sometimes don't do that homework)


I did, but I also stated upstream might have some homework to do 
themselves. Here's a list of things that  :


 - COPYING automagically copied by automake (that would make the file 
be GPL-2+ or GPL-3+)

 - code stolen from other projects under a non-compatible/viral license
 - bundled libraries
 - code that's so old, no-one really knows what the original license 
(XFree86/Xorg) is or who the copyright holders are (Mozilla)


And I haven't even had my morning coffee yet.

Even if _we_ do our homework, all those reasons above might mislead us 
into thinking a package has license ABC, while in fact it's under 
license ABC+ and XYZ.


I don't see how a new EAPI will help us with all the aforementioned 
issues. And for the proposed LICENSE sets to work correctly, the whole 
tree needs to be audited, and each new _version_ of each package needs 
to be rigorously checked if we want to provide something users can _trust_.


Cheers,

Rémi
