I decided as much as possible to use only free/libre licensed software etc.
So I changed my
ACCEPT_LICENSE="-* @FSF-APPROVED @FREE-DOCUMENTS"
This is relatively strict setting, but I chose it because I want to see exactly how many and which ebuilds I need for normal use that are not fully free.
So far here's the roughly categorised statistics of my install:
3 /etc/portage/package.license/emul 3 /etc/portage/package.license/fonts 10 /etc/portage/package.license/games 3 /etc/portage/package.license/internet 5 /etc/portage/package.license/media 32 /etc/portage/package.license/system 6 /etc/portage/package.license/text 62 total
The packages that a Listed as system include 7 ebuilds of archiving/compressing software and 8
dev-perl ebuilds which are under Artistic license (seems in Perl Artistic license is quite strong). In text the majority comes from TexLive and the licenses are LPPL-1.3 or -1.3c (1.2 is already in @FSF-APPROVED). In games the most used license is Moria since I have quite a number of rogue-likes installed.
On a related note: I'll be applying for the Gentoo Licenses team. I figured that's the thing I can help with which I'm best suited for.
