FSDG Picard references plugins with unknown licence

Composant:License problems
Catégorie:Rapporter un bogue

MusicBrainz Picard (package name: picard) contains a button to 'Download Plugins' (Menu:Options > Options > Plugins). This directs to a webpage[1] containing a list of developer and community developed python plugins with no reference to licences.

In the event that this is an issue I submit a package-helper[2] to remove the button.

You might want to edit your package helper. At the top it say copyright Rubén Rodríguez <name at domain>.

Statut:patch (needs review)» patch (needs work)

The upstream issue has been closed with a wiki update, then appears to have been regressed with a move to a github solution. There are still unlicensed files in there.

FSDG states we cannot reference a software repo which does not guarantee FSDG code only. So the above patch needs forward porting to 7.0 and presumably 6.0.

So I'd better do it.
