Re: New Package: x2x



SPEC: http://anduril.pams.ncsu.edu/~slack/SPECS/x2x.spec
SRPM: http://anduril.pams.ncsu.edu/~slack/SRPMS/x2x-1.30-3.beta.src.rpm

I've incorperated the fixes regarding the man page.

IANAL.  I'm not sure what to do about the two licenses.  It seems to me
that by incorperating code that's under the GPL that should make the
package GPL.  So that's what I did.  Better suggestion?
