Message I've created Propel packages for Fedora that are in review right now but
the reviewer is unsure whether the LGPL is valid in Propel's case,
quote:

"The license is a bit odd. First off, I think it's LGPLv2+, because the
version is not specified anywhere and the LGPL allows us to choose any
version at all in that case.

However, if you look upstream, they say that they've relicensed Apache 2
licenced code to LGPL. I sort of understand what the situation would be if they
had licensed to GPL, as only GPLv3 is compatible with ASLv2 so the result would
be GPLv3+. But I really don't know about LGPL."

Can anyone please clarify this? Until then, Propel's inclusion in Fedora remains
impossible. The full review can be seen at
