parentsci-chemistry/avogadro: Add test phase (diff)
dev-java/netcdf: Add the netCDF licence (which is *not* MIT)
I'm not sure why the license was changed when this ebuild was imported from my overlay, but NetCDF deserves its own entry under licenses/ From http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf-java/documentation.htm: > The library is freely available and the source code is released > under the (MIT-style) netCDF C library license. Previous versions > use the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). The license text [1] has several important deviations from MIT, for example: * netCDF does not explicitly grant the right to sublicense and/or sell copies, while MIT does. There are also a number of other changes, involving legalese that I don't understand. However, I imagine the UCAR/Unidata lawyers made the deviations from the MIT license intentionally, and Gentoo users should be able to easily see what they are getting into by using this package.
