      Description

      Hi Team,

      Can you help me resolve a legal issue about the use of the file: sRGB Color Space Profile.icm

      The HP license says that distribution is free provided the file is not modifiied. We don't intend to modify this file, but this rule breaks the definition of Open Source which I understand is a requirement to include it with Apache Software. A more detailed description of the issue can be found here: https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52704

      Thanks,

      Chris Bowditch

        Is this still needed Chris? Did HP relicense? Did Debian drop fop?

        Hi Henri, this ticket can be closed. As a workaround it is downloaded at compile time, therefore avoiding the need to have it in the source code.

        How does that fix the problem? Is this a mandatory dependency?

        The file in question is not stored in the source code repository and so can't be modified by people redistributing the source
