We generally don't care about the list of contributors.  We trust that
the upstream maintainers have correctly gotten permission from
contributors to include their changes under the license indicated.
(We can't do any better, unless we insisted on seeing evidence of
valid assignments or signed licenses, such as the FSF usually does.)

The limitation on copying fees mean that these files cannot be in
Debian, but they can be in the non-free archive.
