Should be clarified: there's no license by that name (they most likely
mean the "GNU Lesser General Public License"), and must specify which
version applies. The package source from upstream should include a
copy of the license text, so check which version that is.

This clarification should *not* be done without acknowledgement from
the copyright holder; nobody else has the right to change a copyright

I'll leave it to others more versed in US export law to say whether
this affects Debian for this work.
