Hjälpsam was written especially for you. 😛

Of course, you write email to with the subject:
[ELPA] new package buc.el

and then make sure you submit papers to assign copyrights to FSF, they
will protect it hopefully, even if you become unavailable in some far
Asian country.

Now for review:

- xsel.el -- it does not have proper headers, you only mentioned
  license by its abbreviation, but that is not recommended. Sorry if I
  mixed something, though this is how it should look like.

Example header for xsel.el:

;;; xsel.el --- use the X clipboard -*- lexical-binding: t -*-

;;; Commentary:

;;; This gives you access to the X clipboard from a Linux
;;; VT/console/tty Emacs instance (or any Emacs, possibly).
;;; Set and/or Insert the X clipboard at point.
;;; DWIM: If there is a region, replace it with the
;;; X clipboard.
;;; Feature: Set the X clipboard programmatically in Elisp or
;;; set it interactively to the contents of the region (if
;;; there is one), otherwise set it to the most recent
;;; Emacs kill.
;;; Use $DISPLAY or ":0" with xsel(1x).
