@MeFinity Thanks, just updated the package. SKlauncher devs really can't decide how they want to store their binaries. :^)

@stingraykiwi I've thought about it for a while, and decided to include the ToS in a LICENSE file, adding custom:SKlauncher as a 2nd license in the PKGBUILD, as well as including a post-install script that informs the user about the ToS. Thank you for reaching out with this problem! In case someone finds something non-compliant to the general guidelines here, feel free to reach out too, I wanna try keeping my AUR packages as standard as possible.

@bemxio I think it would suffice to simply mention it PKGBUILD file, sort of resembling F-Droid's anti-features warning. For example license=("Apache-2.0, Non-free") or something like that.

@stingraykiwi Ah, I see. Sure, it is possible, but what way to include it would be the best? A seperate LICENSE file in the package itself that would be copied to /usr/share/licenses? I am not sure, thus I'm open to ideas :)

@bemxio I understand Apache is not copylefted and is permissive. However, this software relies on an online service which is not free (has EULA Would it be possible to specify multiple licenses, first for binary and second for the service?

@stingraykiwi I thought that too at first, but when I opened the SKlauncher.jar file in search of a license, it turns out it is licensed as Apache version 2.0, thus I've set it as Apache-2.0 in the package as well. I also did some research about the license, and it turns out you can release an Apache-licensed binary, without releasing the source code. I know that the LICENSE file inside the .jar might just be a placeholder for the devs, but it's the only information I could find about how SKlauncher is licensed.

Please change license to proprietary.
