Thanks a lot for taking out the time to review the packages.

Dropping the note.

I looked at a few other packages by smartystreets which are already in
Debian main. Including
goconvey https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/golang-github-smartystreets-goconvey

and both of them seem to refer to smarty streets as SmartyStreets, LLC
even the upstream source code license mentions it as SmartyStreets, LLC
It is just in my case the upstream license just has the name as

Should I just keep the name as is in the upstream or should there be no
issues adding the LLC part?
