i recognized that there is new package in aur for opera with this informations:
"This package is the official one from the [extra] repository. We have to move it because of a unclear license issue. After we have clarify this issue the package will be back in the repos or not. It should not be moved to community, because of the license."
I'm a little bit surprised that a custom license is such a problem because this shows me 343 entries:
find /var/abs -name PKGBUILD | \ xargs grep license | \ grep custom | grep extra | wc -l
Will now all packages with custom licenses disappear from extra?
No. Only the ones where it is unclear if we can legally distribute it.
To clarify a little more, a "custom" license is not a specific type of license. It just means the package ships a license that is non-standard and doesn't have a name. The license that is shipped with Opera has some odd language, making us unable to ship it at this current time.
Then also this opera package should be moved from community to AUR http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=9028 ?
