Bug#667904: RFS: mitlm/0.4-1 [ITP] -- MIT Language Modeling toolkit
* Giulio Paci <email@example.com>, 2013-01-02, 01:40:
README says "The vector library is partially derived from the Flexible
Library for Efficient Numerical Solutions by Michael Lehn", but this
information is not included in the copyright file.
I added information in copyright file, but I am not sure how to handle
the situation properly: the license is the same (BSD-3-clause), but the
text is different because they are citing explicitly the name of their
institutions in the license text.
Should I use a generic version of the license text? Should I change one
of the license identifiers to something different than BSD-3-clause?
The latter. This was discussed on debian-policy recently:
This warning is still there, but I do not know how to remove it. In
this case -Wl,--as-needed did not work.
libquadmath linking is added by the autoconf check for gfortran, used
to compile part of the library. Do you have any hints?
dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: package could avoid a useless dependency if
debian/libmitlm0/usr/lib/libmitlm.so.0.0.0 was not linked against
libquadmath.so.0 (it uses none of the library's symbols)
(I'll take a look at this later.)
