Hi maintainer(s)!

I'm sorry, but I have to reject your package.  Its debian/copyright is far
from complete, and some parts are in the current state not distributable by

Some of the problems I've found:

bibledit-gtk-4.2/doc/site/*.html (and html files in subfolders):
contain obfuscated java script stuff, with "/* Copyright 2008 Google. */"

bibledit-gtk-4.2/doc/site/activity.xml doesn't look like prefered form of

sourceless binary stuff with different copyright holder

bibledit-gtk-4.2/outpost/bwoutpost.exe (and some other files)
Missing source, unknown license?

Don't know what these files are

On 4 August 2009 Jeff Klassen of the Canadian Bible Society gave permission
to distribute this file:
"Please feel free to distribute the current version of the CHM help file.
We're glad that the documentation can be of help."

Since it does not come with a license, it is supposed that the file is in
the public domain. 

Uhm... No.  The author statement doesn't grant all rights required by the
DFSG, and "supposing" it's public domain is not enough. Beside:  That's not
mentioned in your debian/copyright either.

"It is designed for use in combination with the output of Help & Manual and
must not be used outside this context."
What is this file?  May I edit it?  May it be distributed?  Who's the
copyright holder?

bibledit-gtk-4.2/xetex/ptx2pdf.tar.gz not in debian/copyright at all.

Best regards,
