fstrim-all script trusty license

Asked by Wouter Wijsman on 2014-12-16

Hello,

I would like to package the fstrim-all script found in the util-linux package for Trusty for my custom version of SteamOS. Am I allowed to do this and what is the license on this script?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings,

Wouter Wijsman
