meson: installs_libs no?

Reported by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt) Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: mojca (Mojca Miklavec)
Port: meson


GPL-licensed ports that build with meson become nondistributable, because meson uses python36, and python36 uses openssl, and the GPL conflicts with the openssl license.

"ncmpc" is not distributable because its license "gpl" conflicts with license "OpenSSL" of dependency "openssl"

Does meson install any libraries that get embedded into software built using meson, such that they would affect that software's license? I am assuming that it does not, and that it should therefore use installs_libs no to indicate that.

Meson merely generates text files with python scripts. No remnants of openssl whatsoever. Feel free to change it if you are at it.
