We have been cleaning up some of the licensing issues across files, and this will be looked at. Thanks for bringing these ones to our attention.

Since you are looking to build 1.02.000 for SUSE (I think I put in an RFE for it) I'd like to offer up some friendly advice. GNUBG no longer uses libesd and esound for sound we now use libcanberra . libxml-2.0 is no longer used.

OpenSUSE dropped gtkglext support in 12.3 but I believe it was reintroduced in 13.x . If this is the case I'd amend the spec file to support gtkglext again.

I recommend building with libgmp (to support long seeds).

To make the Python support a bit more complete I'd also suggest adding a requirement of python-mysql . This allows player database support via mysql.

Thanks for looking at doing the upgrade to 1.02.000.

I am packaging gnubg for openSUSE. Our package checks reported an outdated FSF address in the files listed below.
Check http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.en.html#howto for the current license text.
