mingw32-gdb license package issue

dhoyt
The mingw32-gdb package also seems to have license issues. Here's what I get:


$ mingw-get --all-related licence mingw32-gdb

mingw-get.exe: *** WARNING *** http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/gdb-7.3.1-1-mingw32-lic.tar.lzma?download: opened with unexpected status: code = 404
mingw-get.exe: *** WARNING *** please report this to the mingw-get maintainer
mingw-get.exe: *** ERROR *** Get package: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/gdb-7.3.1-1-mingw32-lic.tar.lzma?download: download failed


Oddly enough, running "mingw-get licence mingw32-gdb" doesn't result in an error.

That appears to be a bug in mingw-get.  It seems to assume that all
licence elements will have the component value "-lic", but gdb doesn't.
It actually has per-release <licence/> and <source/> elements, and the
<licence/> element is actually the -doc component.

       <component class="bin">
         <release tarname="gdb-7.3.1-1-mingw32-bin.tar.lzma" >
           <source tarname="gdb-%-mingw32-src.tar.lzma" />
           <licence tarname="gdb-%-mingw32-doc.tar.lzma" />
           <requires eq="mingw32-libexpat-*-mingw32-*-dll-1.tar" />
           <requires eq="mingw32-libintl-*-mingw32-*-dll-8.tar" />
         </release>

Yeah, I don't understand that, either.

Once again, thanks for the report.
