I'll hurry and try to get the license thing done by tomorrow.

I stumbled about an ICONS_LICENSE.txt found
in ./src/Symfony/Bundle/WebProfilerBundle/Resources/. The icons it talks
about are the base64 encoded PNGs in the views/*/*.twig files relative
to the ICONS_LICENSE.txt.
I assume all the icons found there were created by Sensio, but how can I
represent that with the 1.0 copyright-format? My problem is that the
files itself are released under Expat while the icons stored inside the
files are released under CC-BY-SA 3.0.
My current approach would be to make use of the Comment: field,
explaining only icons are CC-BY-SA 3.0. What do you think?

I only have one minor change in the packaging of the SwiftmailerBridge
pending. Besides that I think the packaging is okay. Since you are
already familiar with it, may I ask you to sponsor it (when it is ready
- hopefully in a few days)?

If we need to upgrade the existing packages, it would be great to only
upgrade them to the 2.3 series of symfony (the one with the long term
support). You definitely can count on my help doing that, if the new
packaging does not make it into Debian before the freeze.
