Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 7
Component/s: Userspace


During internal license audit it was found that there is GPLv2 code that calls into GPLv3 code. 

For instance, the following directory needs to be excluded, because it cannot build with the GPLv3 items removed:
doc/examples <- example applications, not used nor built (But the source is in the public domain)

It is being requested to modify the files necessary to build the package without the GPLv3 items, as well as to skip the examples build.

The secondary request is about removing files from the gnutls package that are licensed under GPLv3. If a customer is only using parts of the package licensed under LGPLv2.1+, he/she will need to remove the GPLv3 files to avoid confusion.

The following directories may need to be completely removed:
libextra/ <- openssl compatibility layer (not used)
src/ <- sources for on-target applications (not used)
guile/ <- sources for disabled feature
