No, there are LGPLv2+, MIT and GPLv2+ parts.

Strictly speaking, this isn't a license. This is copyright assignment
with no restrictions.

I haven't added it to the table yet, because so far, nothing has been
wholly under this "license". It's not worth listing until we hit a case
where this is the only "license" for a package.
I thought than when there are multiple licenses all must be listed with
and:

Yes. Except for this. You don't have to list "no license". ;)


Erm, I thought the "License: foo and bar" was only necessary if there are different licensed binaries in the same rpm (not srpm, think subpackages), and that if one binary has code from multiple compatible licenses that then only the strictest license should be named for that binary, as that is the effective license for that binary then. So if I have a package with 3 binaries, one all GPLv2+ code, one GPLv2+ and some BSD code, and one GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+ code, then all 3 binaries are effectively licensed under GPLv2+ and thus the License tag is just: "GPLv2+" and not "GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+ and BSD".
