The README specifies the license as GPLv3 and does not add the later clause. I
have removed the "+" from the spec.

When I originally submitted this it was the latest package, I've updated to

Updated summary and description.

Upstream recommends using another "dequeue server ... if you feel you need that
security", so I'm going to keep it in the current category for now.
