The copyright notice is wrong: SPI does not own the copyrights for the
web site, so we can't change the license.  I discussed these problems
with Mako at Debconf4.  We decided to ask the OPL author to release a
new version of the license that was free.  Mako also said that he'd
discuss what the copyright notice should say with our lawyer.  I
haven't heard back on either issue, though.
