No, I did not.

I don't know the process for "listing myself".

As I've stated under the current bug discussion (bug #316487), I'm not a
DD, I'm not familiar with the Debian documentation tools.

Moreover:  I didn't add the material to the documentation in the first
place, and I see no reason why execution of license compliance issues
should be up to me.

I've opened a bug at this time so that the maintainers of this package
will address the oversight.

I don't recall if I responded at the time or not.  I don't believe
either case materially affects the current situation.

 What Part of "Gestalt" don't you understand?
    First they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up, because I
    wasn't a Communist.  Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak
    up, because I wasn't a Jew.  Then they came for the Catholics, and I
    didn't speak up, because I was a Protestant.  Then they came for me,
    and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me.
