Hi,

Up to now torque has been licensed with the OpenPBS which has been Fedora approved.

As of version 2.5 the license text changed, I missed this change at the time and the
3.0.0 version currently in devel has an unsuitable license, e.g:
<quote>
1. Redistribution in any form is only permitted for non-commercial,
non-profit purposes.
</quote>

Following this there was a thread upstream:
http://www.clusterresources.com/pipermail/torquedev/2011-January/003342.html
and it resolved to be an error what had been done. The final statement from the current
maintainers is warming:
http://www.clusterresources.com/pipermail/torquedev/2011-January/003369.html

So PBS_License.txt file was again changed to as below "TORQUE v2.5+ Software License v1.0"

The new license claims torque is licensed both by the OpenPBS license and this new Torque license.
The torque license v1.0 seems in isolation probably acceptable and includes
the acknowledgement from the old license.

So as I understand it now this "Torque v1.0" license would need to be approved and then
.spec contains,

License: OpenPBS and Torque

I should also include an old copy of OpenPBS license in %doc.
