I'm learning how to package RPM:s according to the Fedora rules,

variant of the BSD license, which I attach.
A few individual files in the package have different licenses. In
some case it's GPLv2+ licensed, but some scripts have a separate short
license which I also attach.
I understand that I should ask here if 1) it is ok to package this
program, and 2) what to use in the License tag value.
So, the problem here is that the BSD license has the advertising clause,
which makes it incompatible with GPL. You will need to get the copyright
holders of the code under that BSD license to drop the advertising
clause. I'd strongly suggest trying to work with upstream for this.
