You search?

Internet has some information on this.

Me neither.

I'm in the same position. So I dig. And frankly I don't have much time
for this, especially since in most case it's just a lack of information
(and not a problematic license). As you may have noticed, desktop-base
team is rather empty right now, and more technical (and I'd say more
severe too) problems exist which need to be fixed for Squeeze.

So again, reporting is nice, it's important to have correct copyright
information on the package. But fixing is better.
