1) d/copyright: An interesting case :)

Now it says "MIT";
recommends "There are many versions of the MIT license. Please use
Expat instead, when it matches.", and indeed what's in d/copyright
sounds like the Expat license;
README* has "MIT (X11)";

License: Expat
 This software is Copyright (c) 2020 by Kjetil Kjernsmo.
 This is free software, licensed under:
   The MIT (X11) License

whereas LICENSE says "MIT (X11)" and "MIT" and then has the text of
the Expat license.

I _think_ MIT-X11 and Expat are the same, so I would use one of those
2 terms in d/copyright instead of just MIT.

Additionally there's a missing space in the license text:

2) d/u/metadata:
