In other words, say there are a small number of source files in a packaged
(tarball) work that lack any or clear copyright header, should that be
considered a review blocker?
IANAL and being a generally pragmatic fellow, I'd hoped that we could
generally give upstreams the benefit of the doubt, for lack of any contrary
Fwiw, yes, I have a concrete case in mind here,
and yes, I've asked upstream for clarification (without reply so far). I'd
also hoped not to have a pkg review blocked semi-indefinitely on something
like this though.
What say you?
