Right.  Since your first announcement here, I was quite pleased to know
that there was someone maintaing packages of these programs. I would
really love to see them in the Debian repository.

If the author is really reachable via that e-mail, I'd think that it
should be OK, but, unfortunately, I haven't read the sections of the
Policy regarding legal issues and I am certainly outdated on these

(Right after I wrote the paragraph above, I went to read the Policy
sections 2.3 and 12.5 and I don't quite see a problem regarding an
upload of these programs under a pseudonym).

Am I missing something here? Please, educate me? Perhaps forwarding this
to debian-legal would be a good thing?

Thanks for packaging the programs anyway, Rogério.
