I started rebuilds of whole rubygems.org
as RPM packages in Copr.
However lots of gems cannot be imported due licensing problems.
Such gems fail with this dist-git log:
SrpmBuilderException: error: line 9: Empty tag: License:
Not specifying a license means all rights are reserved; others have no rights to use the
code for any purpose.
And quoting from this link:
Not specifying a license means all rights are reserved; others have
no rights to use the code for any purpose.
If you find your favourite gem missing in this list:
Then it is very likely because of this reason.
I such case, please contact the upstream author and ask him to specify the license.
Note: I just started the rebuild. And we are still processing a* gems. So it will take
some time to process whole
