	Not off hand, no (my living room is fast piling up with boxes
 full of stuff for the movers, I'm just snatching this in rest

	In the particular case you refer to, it may well be redundant,
 and you should talk to the maintainer. However, I can see a
 maintainer including the lsm, and not duplicating the information
 elsewhere, which I think is quite permissible (things like previous
 history of the package, or its antecedents).

	This is a judgement call, and should be made on a case by case
