Oh, i'm sorry! Seems like i've overlooked those two. I don't know what
you've done so far, but if it would be really really nice if i could
either join you or do the package. Just tell me what would be better ;P.

Okay, i removed those files. Adding +dfsg to the version number means
that the package is modified to comply, right? But why is it done then -
i thought every package in main has to comply with dfsg, so its clear
that the packages in main either comply or are modified to comply by the
packager. (don't get me wrong - i dont put adding +dfsg in question, i
just want to understand why its done ;P).

Okay. have you contacted Greg Ward Larson yet to asking him to relicense
/ clearify the license yet? If not i would do that.

Thanks alot for the help.
