Severity: serious

and finally


with contact data and a discouraging comment about getting an answer
from him about licensing stuff.

The list of files is:

(first part researched in teTeX days)

    * chapterbib.sty: no license information
    * tabls.sty: no license information
    * import.sty: "this software is free of any restrictions"
    * relsize.sty: "public domain", nothing else
    * version.sty: no license information, not only by D.A.
    * selectp.sty: no license information 

Files only in TeXLive:

    * braket.sty "This is free, unencumbered, unsupported software."
    * conditionals.sty: No license information, not only by D.A.
    * excludeonly.sty: No license information, not only by D.A.
    * notoccite.sty: PD, but license statement could be clearer
    * placeins.tex: No license information
    * sansmath: PD, but could be clearer (what is PD?)
    * tabto.tex: No license information
    * titleref.sty: PD, spell out
    * underscore.sty: No license information
    * varwidth.sty: LPPL, but outdated "short version" included
