Subject: Are we allowed to provide valid SRC_URI for fetch restricted packages?
Date: Sun, 26 Feb 2012 12:34:13 +0100
Hi all,
I've been asked by a user to remove valid SRC_URI for a package that has
RESTRICT="fetch". The package in question requires you to go to
upstream's webpage, sign license agreement and then you're fed with
download link. User argues that by giving people valid download link
hardcoded in ebuild we may encourage them to bypass the registration
step[1] and that may pose a legal threat. Can anyone more law-aware
comment on that?
TIA!
Kacper
