any progress? I think the best thing for us might be to go for a patched source .tar with xgnokii removed... simple and solves the problem. Currently we have a 3rd party repository (livna) hosting gnokii but moving most of it into Fedora Extras and leaving just xgnokii on livna is quite OK.

Hi Linus,

Just to let you know that we are not ignoring your question. Hugh and
I are currently thinking about this problem. We will let you know

take care,

I package software for the Fedora Extras RPM package repository. We have
had this problem with gnokii that the source directory for xgnokii/xpm
contain a number of Nokia phone images, which are presumably encumbered by
copyrights, trademarks and/or legal pattern protection.

This makes it hard for us to package and distribute gnokii, and other
frontends not using gnokii and its libraries, like gnome-phone-manager.

I do not intend to start another everlasting IP discussion, just want to
route around this problem for now.

Is it possible for you to:

* package xgnokii .tar.gz source separately from the rest of gnokii?
* distribute the .xpm images separately?
* get permission from Nokia to distribute these images under the GNU GPL?

else our option will be to redistribute a RPM with a patched source with
xgnokii taken out or similar. This will work too, but wanted to ask gnokii
developers first.
