They're uncompiled script files. It the case of the .acs files in the acc package, they're basically a string of #defines not unlike C. They're meant to be included in custom .acs files to make it easier to specify certain behaviors by name rather than number. /usr/share/acc perhaps?

There's a few e-mail addresses scattered around mentors.debian.net.

If they're not gone by morning I'll fire off an e-mail, I left a message to ChrisH in #debian-mentors already.

Weird.  You'd think that with all of the money that companies have to throw

properly licence their code...
