edje_decc doesn't extract license text
Open, TrivialPublic

Description

edje_cc allows adding license text and authors text in order to meet the licensing requirements of some content that maybe bundled into a theme. edje_decc does not extract them however which makes them kind of useless. Licenses and Authors files are embedded with -l and -a respectively.

It also doesn't seem to extract fonts that are embedded although that is less of a Legal issue

simotek triaged this task as Showstopper Issues priority.

the license is there.

eet -x file.edj edje/license license.txt

so legally it's got the license there and it's available to get :) same with authors.

i'd call it trivial as the data is there and is trivially extractable.

yeah from a Legal perspective I guess an overly complex way to get it is significantly different to not being able to get it :-)

it's not overly complex. no more than saying "you need to unzip the zip file to get to the readme" :) so it's there and it complies legally - it's shipped as intended and actually available for anyone wanting to look at it. i would argue 99% of people will never edje_decc or even know it exists ... so as an order of magnitude... they are both in the under 1% will even look :)

tbh this is more about the presentation layer - like a theme browser actually displaying this info in a gui as you browse through a list of them etc. ... :) then it's readily available to the user... :)
