PKGBUILD license Public Domain

Hey,

what's the best way to deal with software placed in the public domain within PKGBUILDs?
There's seems to be nothing equal in /usr/share/licenses/common but i neither know, what contents to put into a custom license file for that package.

Thanks in advance!

Re: PKGBUILD license Public Domain

There should be a statement written somewhere saying that it has been put in the public domain.  Stick that in a file and install it to ${pkgdir}/usr/share/licences/${pkgname}/licence.  Add license=('custom') to the PKGBUILD.
