Bug#404917: libmail-listdetector-perl: Includes non-free content

Package: libmail-listdetector-perl
Version: 0.34-1
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 2.3

This module includes files which are -to me- clearly non-free: From
its POD documentation (in lib/Mail/ListDetector.pm):

    This module includes a number of sample emails from various
    mailing lists. In all cases, mails are used with permission of the
    author, and must not be distributed separately from this archive. 

The mails in question make up basically all of the module's tests. The
solution is basically trivial: Remove t/*, repackage the orig.tar.gz
so they are no longer included, and do not run 'make test' while

I intend to adopt this package, so this bug report should be closed
quite soon by myself. Only that the updated package should be allowed
in Etch, IMHO :-/
