Hi there "Mockito maintainers",

I've tried to package and upload Mockito into Debian, unfortunately, the
package has been rejected with the below answer from the FTP team:

1/ Write a correct LICENSE file including the MIT license
2/ Ideally, write the MIT license in each source file
3/ Clearly state who is the copyright holder of Mockito, and not just
write "Mockito maintainers"

then finally publish a new release of Mockito, so that I can package
that in Debian.

If you do the above, then I'm convince python-mockito will reach Debian
in a mater of days.
