Description

I don't use Trisquel, I use Debian, but I was installing some build depends and apt-listbugs caught this bug with the package "fop":

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=657281

It seems that the file "src/java/org/apache/fop/pdf/sRGB Color Space Profile.icm" is non-free, as shown in this section of the {,.LICENSE.txt} for that file:

The line in question is "provided that file is not changed". Modification is not permitted. This is a serious bug, but it has been "ignored" for releases in the Debian repos for nearly two years. Ubuntu doesn't have a bug assigned against this issue, and Trisquel is based on Ubuntu, so I can see why it might have been missed. It's a ~dfsg package as it is, or at least it's labelled as such, but it obviously does not qualify if it contains a non-free file.

And yes, I did run a dget [1] on the Trisquel source and checked whether the offending file is in Trisquel, and it is.

I don't know anything about Java so I'm not sure what functionality would be missed with the absense of this file, so I'm not sure whether programs that depend on this package[2] are affected by it and what the proper course of action would be.

Thanks,
--Aubrey

Sorry, but it looks like I missed some pertinent information in my initial bug report. First, the issue was brought up with Apache, and somebody there claims it would be trivial to create a color profile identical to the offending one:

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52704#c12

Also the issue has apparently been brought up with Fedora, too, and was even allegedly resolved:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=848659

Here's the patch that got it allowed into Fedora's repo again:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=735886&action=diff

And here's this link too, found from the Debian bug:

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/openicc/2013q1/004907.html

Edit: Aha! gNewSense has fixed this bug!

https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?35790

Maybe that'll help?

Hi Aubrey, thanks for this high quality bug report.

I sent a merge request to fix the issue in belenos that should be also applied to toutatis and taranis:
