INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSES and WHITELIST_<license> usage


Saul Wold
 

Folks,

I am working on a proposal to re-write how INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSES is used and processed to possibly include a COMPATIBLE_LICENSES variable as well, see PeterK's email [0]

I am trying to determine the usage of WHITELIST_<license> which would be used to override a license that might be listed in INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSES variable.

Randy and I have done a quick and dirty survey of a 100 or so layers (thanks Randy) and could not find any real usage other than what's currently in OE-Core for WHITELIST_GPL-3.0.

If you are using WHITELIST_<license>, please let me reply with your usage.
