Hi Luke,

Yes, this is what lead me to write the debian/copyright with LGPL. This
has been written by the main author (biggest committer) of python-ddt,
Carles Barrobés, so I think that's enough proof that it's accurate.

Do you believe that the package should be rejected just because of that?
If so, do you think a LICENSE file of some sort is mandatory? I would
find it quite surprising, because the intention of the author is quite
clear to me here.
