I think it is rather a documentation/website issue that anything else.
Changing the GAP license was a huge work for the GAP team and there
is probably still piece of documentation that need to be updated.
Switching PARI/GP to the GPL take about one year to the PARI team,
so I am not surprised it take sometime to the GAP team since GAP is
larger than PARI.
The GAP team is fully aware of the Debian packages, only they do not
have a Debian machine to test them.
I have reported other minor issues in the website to them in the past.
Please do not bother them more that it is neccessary.
