Howdy folks,

There's no upstream license at all in the package. This
violates both the GPL and MPL.

MPL-1.1 section 3.1:

  You must include a copy of this License with every copy of the Source
  Code You distribute.

LGPL-2.1 (as example, all GPLs have this clause) section 1:

   1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's complete
      source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
      conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
      copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices
      that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and
      distribute a copy of this License along with the Library.

(which is violated when we distribute the orig.tar.gz on it's own, which
 we do)

Thanks for your work,
