Package: ofono
Version: 1.18-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

/usr/share/doc/ofono/copyright states "You should have received a copy
of the GNU Lesser General Public License". As ofono is licensed under
GNU GPL v2 this license should be mentioned here, see
/usr/share/common-licenses/GPL-2 for example. A inattentive reader might
interpret this as the package to be licensed under the LGPL.

Kind Regards,
Benedikt Wildenhain
