Everything that is not explicitly mentioned in d/copyright is licensed
under GPL-3+ because of the first license paragraph:
Copyright: (C) 2014-2019 The uBlock Origin authors
(C) 2014-2020 Raymond Hill
to learn more about the copyright syntax.

Not all thirdparty files are non-free, using globs would be wrong.
Currently it works as intended.

The amo-changelog tool in mozilla-devscripts does not work anymore. We
cannot extract the latest changelog information with it and upstream
does not ship a changelog file with the sources. The changelog copies in
debian/upstream were the last time we could extract the information
without any issues.
