[Fedora-legal-list] netcdf-perl license



Currently, the netcdf-perl package license is listed as "NetCDF". The text of the license was recently changed to make the crediting UCAR/Unidata a non-obligitory request.

I've attached the copyright file. I'd appreciate whether knowing whether I should change the text of the License field.

Thanks!
