Hi José

indeed, if Upstream could simply paste the license in the file, that would be

I usually inspect the source code with ‘grep -ri’ and keywords like ‘copyright’
or ‘license’. Once I figure out what are the lead copyright holders, I remove
them from the output with ‘grep -v’, to see if there are extra files with are
obviouly coming from an external source. I then inspect their content.

Also, between two updates, I do a debdiff that I grep for ‘copyright’. It
already helped me to uncover the addition of non-free files.

has some knowledge of KDE.
