Upstream is now willing to release their software, Teal, with a
LGPLv2+ license. They want to know if them sending an e-mail is
sufficient for us to package the same for Fedora, or anything else is

I suggested that it will good if they could mention and include the
LGPLv2+ license information in the source code.

Any thoughts?
