Package: libxml2
Version: 2.6.16-7
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 2.1

libxml2 testsuite includes several testfiles that are unclear if they
are DFSG free. These seem to downloaded from various websites, without
being aware that typically websited do not allow redistributing their
content without permissions.

Atleast the following files were spotted to be probably nonfree material

test/HTML/fp40.htm   - Microsoft Frontpage readme file
test/HTML/wired.html - Wired.com frontpage
test/HTML/test2.html - Old linuxtoday.com page
test/slashdot.rdf    - slashdot rss feed
test/slashdot.xml    - slashdot rss feed
test/slashdot16.xml  - slashdot rss feed
test/wap.xml         - <!-- (C) 1999, 2000 WAP Forum Ltd.  All rights reserved -->
