The guidelines are clear: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines

Non-Numeric Version in Release

There are two cases in which non-numeric versions occur in the Release field:

    * Pre-release packages
    * Snapshot packages

This package is neither.  We want simple integer release numbers when possible.
 Just imagine what this package would look like with a proper dist tag added:
"ht2html-2.0-1jpp_2fc.fc6.rpm".  That's just insane.

rpmlint can be a bit confusing; in this case, the valid licenses accepted are
overridden by a Fedora-specific file /usr/share/rpmlint/config.  The string to
use is "Python Software Foundation License".  However, honestly with absolutely
no license mentioned in the source, you really do need to contact upstream and
get some sort of statement.  When you get that, include the correspondence in
the package.  (In a perfect world they'd make a new release which includes a
license statement, but this package is pretty old so I doubt that would happen.)
