I am very uncomfortable with having code in Debian whose upstream
authors appear to have plagiarised some other people's software, and
then obfuscated it, in order to evade copyright licensing.  Who knows
what other misleading practices they have engaged in, or may do in the
future ?

As a project, we do not have the resources to fully audit all the code
we ingest from upstreams and redistribute to our users.  We must rely
on trust.  That depends on the upstream being trustworthy.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
