Some of the files (for ex
but I've not checked others) would seem to be LGPL 3+, not GPL 3+, which
is the only licence listed in debian/copyright. While this isn't the end
of the world (the resulting binary is GPL 3+, and you can treat all the
LGPL files as GPL) they should really be listed in debian/copyright.

More worryingly, some of the tests (eg:
just say:

Copyright (c) 2004 by Sun Microsystems, Inc.

which technically means we don't have permission to distribute them
(even if only in source form). Unless we can get a statement (from sun)
that these are also under the GPL I think they need to be stripped from
the source tarball (everything under 
com/sun/electric/tool/simulation/test looks like a good bet)

I have uploaded java-gnome now though.
