#3259 closed Bug report

Installer violates GPL

Reported by: sconeu Owned by: Alexander Schuch
Priority: normal Component: Other

Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


This is an issue that was fixed in either 2.29 or 2.30 (issue 1626027).

The installer once again requires acceptance of GPL v2 to install. See issue 1626027 for the reasons why this is incorrect.

Is this for the FileZilla 3 installer or for last FileZilla 2 installer?

Tim already indicated that the click-through is not forbidden, so I guess this report can be closed with whatever status is appropriate?

Best regards,

Yeah, go ahead. Though I would have liked seeing the wording used in 2.29/2.30; no big deal though.

It seems as if the way it is doesn't violate the GPL. And as all parties are more or less happy... closing this bug report.
