Hi, those files will be dropped in the next version later this year:

It feels like pointless nitpicking to me to reject a package because
autotools cruft is not mentioned in debian/copyright. How much of the
Debian archive has stuff like config.sub and config.guess included in
the source but not mentioned in debian/copyright ? The Debian package
here is built with meson so it doesn't use that stuff in the build and
it is not present in the binary packages.

Please be specific about what you want us to do.
1. Can you accept graphene from the reject heap? Or does it have to be
2. If we have to re-upload, do we have to include the license of those
files in debian/copyright just so we can drop the license when we
upload the next version?
