Upstream has resolved the main licensing issue with AMD, which means that the
license on plpa_map.c in PLPA 1.3.2 is now Free, making PLPA acceptable for

Unfortunately, AMD was unable to drop the export clauses from the plpa_map.c
license, so plpa_map.c is Free but GPL Incompatible.

I'm working with Red Hat Legal to propose an exception clause to cover this
case for the GPL, and will propose it to the htop upstream. If they add the
additional clause, we should be able to resolve 531055 without removing htop.

Steve, if you're still interested in maintaining this package, please feel free
to reopen. You'll need to make a new package using 1.3.2, and change the
License tag to read:
