So was this problem previously known but under-acknowledged, or was it simply
not brought up before now?  I find it surprising that Debian would allow so
many license violations to get this far.  Is fixing the tooling to handle this
considered a priority?  If the author of an uncredited dependency were to
complain, would Debian be more likely to focus on fixing the tooling posthaste
or to just pull whatever packages use the dependency in question?
