It is both for unclear licensing terms and of lack of manpower. The fact
that I found again something helping me in getting my packages into the
archive will help a lot! :-)

Sure, many other plugins are included with much more arguable GPL
headers. Thank you very much for contacting upstream. Some times ago I
had tried to contact collectively all plugin authors through the
josm-dev mailing list, in order to tell them about GPL headers.

Not meny of them answered. :-(

cadastre-fr will be surely included in next tested. I prefer not to
update it right now, because plugin API is often unstable, so it's
better to package plugins at the same time of josm itself. Anyway,
tested revisions are quite frequent.
