OK, I see.
But the package open-axiom-svn 1082-1 says, License is GPL2.
looking up the License on the projects's homepage, I found
" Modified BSD license". So, "custom" (because not BSD, but modified BSD)
seems to be correct.
So the package
says "custom" license
and the package
says GPL2, which is not correct.
Is a comment to the maintainer and waiting for answer sufficient?
