* common-license: Add ICU genericElizabeth Flanagan2012-03-251-0/+13
| | | | | | | | | Another lone license with no generic available. (From OE-Core rev: 544dec2bbe8055418e2d28262e59c40d0d55b289) Signed-off-by: Elizabeth Flanagan <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | socat uses this. There is no good standardized text for this, but as socat is the only one who utilizes this, it should do for now although this package has some licensing issues according to debian.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This is a fairly large commit, so I want to step through some of what this accomplishes: 1. Additional licenses I've added/modified/corrected some of the common licenses within OE-core in prep. for a major license audit. Most of these are in SPDX format. A few, there is no OSI equivalent. 2. Additional SPDX mappings I've added some additional SPDX mappings to account for removing some duplicate licenses. (ie GPL-2 and GPL-2.0 were the same) I've also remapped a few things to more accurately reflect what they should be pointing at. Note: Artistic/LGPL/GPL/MPL. Quite a few LICENSE fields list these licenses. They make no sense and need auditing. In a future commit I have some fixes to particularly egregious LICENSE fields, but a full audit should be done. I've listed to obvious candidates at: 3. License manifest We now have a license manifest generation that occurs in rootfs for everything BUT .deb. This requires the changes Paul Eggleton has done to rootfs_* particularly the list_installed_packages function. The manifest is accurate during a parallel bitbake now (Weee!) and is prime for my planned SPDX format manifest during the next period. 4. License manifest on image. We also want the ability to add licenses to the image. This functionality is also in base-files and will be stripped out in my next commit. The manifest is not added by default and is a two var setting in license.conf: If I want *just* the manifest on the image (small) then I set: COPY_LIC_MANIFEST = "1" This copies the manifest to: /usr/share/common-licenses/license.manifest If I want the actual PKG license text on the image (much larger) I need to set both both COPY_LIC_MANIFEST and COPY_LIC_DIRS in license.conf. This will create: /usr/share/common-licenses/(package name)/(licenses in LIC_SRC_URI) Word of warning. This can be larger than wanted depending on image and is probably ripe for linking licenses, but I ran out of time this week to get that done. 5. Custom License search path. We now have the ability to add licenses to the build without touching common-licenses. This is set via license.conf: LICENSE_PATH += "/path/to/custom/licenses" You want to make sure the license is unique. license.bbclass picks the first license it finds.

* image.bbclass, kernel.bbclass: create warning file about deleting deploydir ↵Paul Eggleton2011-08-191-0/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | files New users sometimes delete files in tmp/deploy/images assuming they will be re-created just by re-running the build, and then are confused when this doesn't work. To discourage people from doing this, create a file called README_-_DO_NOT_DELETE_FILES_IN_THIS_DIRECTORY.txt in tmp/deploy/images containing an explanation of what needs to be done to re-create files there. Fixes [YOCTO #1315] and [YOCTO #1346]. (From OE-Core rev: 4316c5e9eec67d71f4699102a63a5f968bd8d1d9) Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
* classes/package.bbclass: Add fixup_permsMark Hatle2011-06-301-0/+69
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Add a new function that is responsible for fixing directory and file permissions, owners and groups during the packaging process. This will fix various issues where two packages may create the same directory and end up with different permissions, owner and/or group. The issue being resolved is that if two packages conflict in their ownership of a directory, the first installed into the rootfs sets the permissions. This leads to a least potentially non-deterministic filesystems, at worst security defects. The user can specify their own settings via the configuration files specified in FILESYSTEM_PERMS_TABLES. If this is not defined, it will fall back to loading files/fs-perms.txt from BBPATH. The format of this file is documented within the file. By default all of the system directories, specified in bitbake.conf, will be fixed to be 0755, root, root. The fs-perms.txt contains a few default entries to correct documentation, locale, headers and debug sources. It was discovered these are often incorrect due to being directly copied from the build user environment. The entries needed to match the base-files package have also been added. Also tweak a couple of warnings to provide more diagnostic information. (From OE-Core rev: 8c720efa053f81dc8d2bb604cdbdb25de9a6efab) Signed-off-by: Mark Hatle <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>

* common-licenses: Adding new licenses and renamingBeth Flanagan2011-05-27126-2599/+21995
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | I'm adding full common licenses to the common license directory. These licenses are taken from the SPDX project or the OSI license repository. They conform to the SPDX naming convention and will be used by the new license.bbclass license parser in order to maintain some sort of internal standard for license naming. Going forward, we should have a bigger conversation about the LICENSE field and standardizing that to conform to this naming standard.

* Initial commit of license reporting:Beth Flanagan2011-01-2813-0/+4670
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This is an intial commit for the license reporting system. A few notes: The LICENSE fields needs to be standardized throughout poky. As it stands, we throw a warning if the license file is not found (either because it does not exist or because LICENSE_FILE_CHKSUM is munged) in the generic license directory. This should eventually become an error. I've seen a few places where Apache-v2.0 is written differently and I'm sure this will throw the above warning. This does not put the license data on the rootfs. Also, I provide both the actual license text and a link to the best guess of the generic_license. That guessing is not very robust and I'm loath to get into a bunch of pattern matching rather than standardize LICENSE. This adds one new param to poky.conf and one new to license.bbclass: LICENSE_DIR: the base directory we copy all the license results to (set in license.bbclass) COMMON_LICENSE_DIR: this is the directory that holds all the common generic license files. currently meta/files/common-licenses (set in poky.conf) TODO: - We should verify the common-licenses. I stripped these from my Ubuntu 10.10 system. - We should allow the capability of licenses on the rootfs, although the resulting image created would be a lot larger. - More common-licenses. I don't include bzip, zlib, ICS.... I should, but that means tracking down a lot of licenses. - General cleanup of licensing and standardization of names. We should standardize on a naming convention. What's in licenses.conf should match up with what is in the recipes which should match with what is in common-licenses. Outside the scope of this though.
