It's not an OSI approved license, but it is listed as a
"GPL-Incompatible, Free Software License".

I've updated the PackagingGuidelines with regards to licensing.
Basically, if its a OSI-approved license, "GPL-Compatible, Free Software
License", or "GPL-Incompatible, Free Software License", its ok for
Fedora Extras.

Thus, the LPPL is ok.
