They're in the upstream source tarball, so I think they're covered
by the current copyright statement
which isn't a licence that requires original source code (like GPL
might IIRC) and arguably PS files are program source code anyway
so I think I'd ship it in both.  Why do you think not?

If we had an easier-to-use source code for the files, we should
include that, but PS is OK.

Hope that informs,
