I searched for license information missing from your debian/copyright

The debian/copyright file of your package looks comprehensive to me.

Many thanks for the copyright review. (I know it is a lot of work.)

I added the missing information you found (and also uppercased some
license names to match the copyright format specification) [1].

It's probably not necessary to make a new upload to the NEW queue for
this change. In the repository is a new upstream version anyway and it
will be uploaded, once the current version gets accepted.

In my experience you need not wait for ftpmaster approval to issue
subsequent releases: When approving, they will simply approve the
subsequent releases as well.

If you don't release updates, you may risk that when ftpmaster finds
time to inspect your package they find flaws (which you knew about and
had prepared fixes for but did not in fact formally provide) - and you
get the package rejected and need to wait for _next_ window that they
find time to inspect it anew.

Thanks for warning me, as that would indeed be unfortunate, so I'm going to ask my sponsor to make a new upload.

Best regards,
Andreas
