Maybe you don't know the license (although PyGPU is GPL version 2, it
says so in COPYRIGHT.txt), but you can already write a long description.

Well, the PyGLEW package should also be GPL version 2. If it has a
license incompatible with GPLv2, then you cannot link both that library
and PyGPU to an application, and the website says that PyGPU doesn't
work without PyGLEW.

While you're at it, tell upstream that they should include the full
license text in COPYRIGHT.txt, or ask if they really expect everyone to
write a letter to the Free Software Foundation :)

Ok, but next time explicitly mention that you are missing information
(and why) in the ITP.
