I'd like to package [1] a program which is GPLv2+ licensed, but as far as I
can tell, this fact is only stated in a couple [2] of [3] lines of its
setup.py build script. This is a bit of an obscure way to state the license
for my taste. However before I bother the upstream maintainer about this, I
would like to double check that the Debian project actually has
requirements for something more explicit to be present in the upstream
source. It's been a while since I packaged something, and I only have vague
recollection that there were such rules, but maybe I'm confusing them with
GNU packaging rules... Is it written down anywhere?
