Well, that's kind of a formalised teaching method but we have taught

The link to cap3 is at the end of this mail. If I would have a link
to the license I would have provided it. The page contains a source
code archive but I have not seen any link to a license. Part of the
Debian developer work is to do research (may be by contacting the
authors) to find out the license.

I did not received any application message via the Gitlab interface
but I've manually added you to the project.

You are welcome. I think the first task is to create a Git archive for
cap3 now and inject the source archive. Please let me know whether you
see any blockers here.
