As far as I can see, the package is indeed distributable, but not fit
for main.
I therefore close the bug cloned for snapshot.d.o (sorry for the noise)
and will remove the package from main soonish.

Yes, fit for non-free not for main.  And the whole license should be
added to debian/copyright (and an unofficial translation would be
usefull, too).

Well, in some legislations "reproduction" includes limited modifications
rights, however not enough for main (and not in .eu).  So yes, unfit for
main, unless clarified to include rights for modifications.
