Hi,

Libaca is licensed under the "DO WHAT THE F**K YOU WANT TO PUBLIC
LICENSE". Here is the full text (it's so short) :

            DO WHAT THE F**K YOU WANT TO PUBLIC LICENSE
                    Version 2, December 2004

  0. You just DO WHAT THE F**K YOU WANT TO.

It's pretty much Public Domain with the obligation of changing the name
for redistribution. What should I do regarding the license field of the
package? Do we need to add a new "WTFPL" possible entry? :-) The
libcaca sources also come with copies of the GPLv2 and LGPLv2, but
those aren't referenced anywhere in the source code, except the
autotools part.

PS: The original License text doesn't have the "**".


This license is already on the list of approved licenses:

The Short form for in the spec file is: WTFPL

p.s.

Great to still see you active, as you've been very quiet with regards to rpmfusion. Thorsten has got us a workable infra, all we are really waiting for before moving forward is you, so if you could please spare 15 minutes to tell us where you stand that would be awesome!
