I see, pinged the devs to see if the header could be changed to "or any
later version"..

Also, the plugin is used by 389-ds-base which is GPLv2, so the license
should be fine? FreeIPA itself doesn't "use" it other than via the
post-install setup wrappers that configure stuff.

right, licensecheck didn't show them..

Well, I think README-LICENSE.txt is out of date, for starters since
there's no css/bootstrap.css anymore which is gone since this commit:


as you can see, Bootstrap now uses MIT license. Patternfly itself is
Apache-2.0, but it's only used as a tool here for patternfly.css, not
that it contains code from it (AISI).

Were these answers satisfactory so that I can upload a fixed package?-)
