The term "software" is used here (and at a lot of other places) as
"representation of works in machine-readable form". This means that
this mail is "software".
But: Most of the mails here are not copyright-able at all, and thus
have no license status and can be included everywhere and even in
main. However, if you need a License statement for a specific mail
from me, just ask me and you'll get a DFSG-free license (or most
probably a: "not copyrightable at all"-remark with mention that this
means you can just distribute it).
And: That "software" is more than just software means that we must
sometimes use the DFSG with a even larger pinch of grain.
