Debian considers the freedom of works, not license texts in isolation.

Thanks for this. So, this translates to a request to review the legal
freedom of the current Parrot package, yes?

I presume you're asking for a review of a package (or the latest
version of a package) that is not yet in Debian. Where do we find the
current copyright statement, grant of license, and the license terms?
