Why do you think the software is not free software distributed under the
The author explicitly states in the README that they have released it as
GPL2+, and most of the files also contain license headers.
Sorry if I misunderstood, the intention of the author is clearly to licence the work as gpl, but some files are missing the gpl clause. Also a copy of the license is omitted. It is mandated by term 1 of gpl. If this partial application of gpl makes this a free software, then sorry for the noise. In case this software is ok for upstream, and is not packaged yet, then I would be happy to contribute a package.
