Probably missing a dependency.

The website states that it's licensed under the OSI Approved :: BSD License. It is also indicated in the Debian package.

Hmm. Version 2.7.0 has been released, and it doesn't include any LICENSE file any more (other support files are missing from the source package as well). And I have no idea how to report this upstream; the Trac bug tracker is apparently only available to IETF members.

I probably shouldn't just ignore it, but I don't know what I'm supposed to do now. Any ideas?
