Do you have any reference to the discussions those people had over their
license to distribute that information?

I would expect such a discussion to get into the issue of whether a
single password is subject to copyright restrictions, and further
whether a compiled collection of such works is itself subject to
copyright restriction.

I would want to see such a discussion with clear, solid support for the
freedom to redistribute that work under a free license, before proposing
its distribution in Debian.
