Summary0003322: Clarify copyright status of distributed LGPL binaries (Nokia's LGPLv2.1-only code)
DescriptionThe about dialog now says Doomseeker and Wadseeker to be LGPLv2.1+: [^]

But there's actually LGPLv2.1-only code in Wadseeker from Nokia / Qt, which Doomseeker links to.

What do?
Steps To ReproduceThese files are LGPLv2.1 only (not "any later version") with a special exception (LGPL_EXCEPTION.txt):

  • src/wadseeker/protocols/fixedftpreply.h

  • src/wadseeker/protocols/fixedftpreply.cpp

  • src/wadseeker/protocols/fixednetworkaccessmanager.h

  • src/wadseeker/protocols/fixednetworkaccessmanager.cpp

Blocker because binaries should not be legal to distribute at the moment, and would cause automatic termination of license.

Doomseeker 1.1 binaries seem to be unaffected?

These classes were first introduced to work around an FTP communication blunder in Qt implementation which caused all communication to die on SIZE command.

This problem seems to be fixed in Qt 4.8 as I wrote a small tool for testing purposes and this tool communicates just fine with idgames archives FTPs, even when compiled against Qt 4.8.7.

At the current moment, I think we can just remove those classes from the code.

Looks fine to me, and it builds & works on my machine (with Qt5).

I'll leave this up for testing until 1.2 release, in case of complaints.
