Hi, I've been trying to bundle pyscard for Fedora (see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=663102 ) however, during the package review some licence issues were uncovered.

Basically:
smartcard/ClassLoader.py
smartcard/Observer.py
smartcard/Synchronization.py
smartcard/scard/pyscard-reader.h

Don't seem to be covered under the same licence - have you had any correspondence with the original authors about them?
Many thanks for any input you can provide -- see the bugzilla ticket (comment #9) for more info.

    Any news for the rest of the files?

    summary: ClassLoader is under the PSF license

    Observer.py and Syncronoization.py is from Thinking in Python, Bruce Eckel http://mindview.net/Books/TIPython (partly crediting Peter Norvig) . The license is unclear, and arguably pyscard do not have any license to ship it. Has any attempt been made at contacting Bruce?
