Hello maintainer,

Please see the following notes with regards to python-managesieve:

The license file indicates that several files are LGPL 2.1.  I don't find any
files which are under the LGPL.  I find files under the GPL, which isn't



Also note: I wonder about using the Python license as written here.  This
license is arranges as an agreement between the Python Software Foundation and
the Licensee.  However I don't know what that does for our distributability, as
the Python Software Foundation isn't a copyright holder.  I DO see other
software packages in the archive that seem to be doing this, however.

Sound similar like the PHP thing, which we consider free but not fitting someone else but php/pear itself.

I think so far just no one noticed, but IMHO it doesn't work out.

Thank you,
