Here's the reply from the FTP masters. Please specify correctly the full
MIT license somewhere (best would be a LICENSE file). Note that if you
want to release Mockito under this license:

then many people call it the "Expat" license, which removes any
ambiguity with the multiple MIT licenses.

Please let me know when this is fixed, so I can make another attempt at
uploading to Debian.

Correct; there are several licenses that MIT has used, and saying "the MIT
license" is not sufficiently unambiguous, despite the OSI determining a
definition of their opinion of what the term means.
