That seems to be the wrong way around.

The OGC schemas fall under the Software Notice as documented in the OGC
LegalFAQ [1], the testcases appear to fall under the Document Notices
(although the CITE test may have a different license than Document or
Software Notice, I've never received feedback from OGC on my questions).

To adress the TinyOWS issue, upstream has moved the testcases to a
separate repository and won't include it in tarball at the next release.

This should allow TinyOWS to move to main after the package is updated to
strip the testcases as is done in the upstream git repo.

If the FTP masters consider the OGC schemas to fall under the Document
Notice despite what the OGC LegalFAQ says, then we need to move a lot of
GIS packages to non-free because they also contain the schemas.
