It looks like a modified version of the Apache license. I would
recommend either asking the OSI or the FSF to review the license to
determine whether it is a free software license or whether the added
conditions / restrictions render it non-free.

If the license / terms don't specifically prevent openSUSE distributing
the built binaries (Take patent violation as an example) then its
probably better going into the non-oss repo then packman, that is of
course if the license allows it to be distributed.
"You shall not license, sell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute,
host, outsource, disclose or otherwise commercially exploit or make the
Software available to any third party except as expressly provided for
in Section 2.1 above; "
I am not a lawyer but I would read the above as an indication that it
shouldn't be published / distributed on a public obs instance. I could
be wrong though.
> Is GitKraken open source? Can I contribute to its development?
No, GitKraken is not open source. We welcome your feature requests and
any ideas you have to share. Feel free to let us know.
GitKraken does rely on open source projects like NodeGit, libgit2, and
Electron. Our devs actively contribute to these projects in an effort
to help all software that use them (including GitKraken, of course)!

Sounds like you’re looking for a career at Axosoft. We’re pretty nice
people and we’re hiring talented devs.
