Legal review for package submissions to the openSUSE distribution
For new packages, a full review of the sources is done to ensure that the package does not violate any licence or copyright constraints. If you submit a package that you don't own, the owner of the package will be respectfully contacted to request permission to add the package to Factory before the package will be accepted. (This triggers an additional review.)
For existing packages, if the legal-auto review (the automatic reviewed noted above) fails, then a full manual review is triggered.
For all legal review details, see the Legal section of the packaging guidelines.
