While checking the contents of our `perl' package, I noticed the following:
/* NOTE: this is derived from Henry Spencer's regexp code, and should not
* confused with the original package (see point 3 below). Thanks, Henry!
/* Additional note: this code is very heavily munged from Henry's version
* in places. In some spots I've traded clarity for efficiency, so don't
* blame Henry for some of the lack of readability.
/* The names of the functions have been changed from regcomp and
* regexec to pregcomp and pregexec in order to avoid conflicts
* with the POSIX routines of the same names.
* pregcomp and pregexec -- regsub and regerror are not used in perl

I looked but couldn't find any common name for this license
of Henry's. Is it on our list? Is it free? What name should
I use in the License tag?
I would like to distribute OpenSpades on COPR.
The license of the code itself is GPLv3. But it depends on content which I am not sure can be distributed on COPR.
I have attached a link to the license in question below.
Can I distribute the files in question on COPR?
Today, a Third-Party Modified Version of the Fraunhofer FDK AAC Codec
Library for Android has been cleared for inclusion in Fedora. This
specific library has been modified to be useful with Linux and
gstreamer, and provides some support for encoding and decoding of the
AAC digital audio codec.
The package containing this library is called "fdk-aac".
No other AAC implementations (regardless of copyright license) are
permitted in Fedora at this time.
Also, fwiw, I gave Adam the all clear on this, I've just been traveling and
hadn't had a chance to reply to this thread until now.

Fortunately I have git-cherry-pick so I don't have to care what
