License missing from gemspec #1
Hmmm ... The license is there in the s.files declaration. I've add a license declaration to the code, but this won't get into the gem until the next update (I don't think this change warrants a version update and subsequent new gem build).
I notice the rubygems specification reference has the license declaration as optional:
@bf4 is there a specific reason why the lack of a license declaration is causing a problem for you? As if so, I should update all my gems!
The license being optional in the gemspec only means that a valid gemspec does not require it. Some companies will only use gems with a certain license. The canonical and easy way to check is via the gemspec. e.g. see https://github.com/pivotal/LicenseFinder It's a good practice, in any case.
So, yes, it would be great to update all your gems.
I'm collecting stats on recently released gems, originally looking for download data, but decided to collect licenses too, and make issues for missing ones as a public service :) https://gist.github.com/bf4/5952053#file-license_issue-rb-L13 So far it's going pretty well
