These are *not* included in the resulting .deb, but I find no copyright
on those binaries.  I *suspect* they are covered by APSL, which IIRC
isn't DFSG compliant.

Also, in the source distribution, a firmware file is distributed.  In
newer upstream releases it is made clear that "Squeezebox firmare may
not be redistributed under any circumstances".  However, they still do
distribute the mDNSResponderPosix without any license - only
*Perl* code is GPLd.

A license clarification might be due for the source distribution.

You filed the bug http://bugs.debian.org/333879 in Debian BTS
against the package slimp3. I'm closing it at *unstable*, but it will
remain open for older distributions.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/303617. That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
