Follow-up Comment #6, task #15759 (project administration):


[comment #5 comment #5:]
> > I don't see how pubring.pgp can be copyrightable. It contains nothing but
PGP public keys, which are cryptographically generated mathematical objects.

data, it contains at least a number of user IDs.  They sum up to an amount

I disagree; a mere directory of personal identifiers with an objective
inclusion criteria is not copyrightable, per Feist Publications, Inc., v.
Rural Telephone Service Co., 499 U.S. 340 (1991) in the United States and
similar rulings and laws in other jurisdictions.  Nonetheless, out of an
abundance of caution I have added a README conditionally listing a putative
licence in the event that the work is somehow, somewhere copyrightable.

OK, I am attaching a new tarball.  This one includes documentation (since the
author has confirmed to us its licence) and copyright notices (either in-file
or in READMEs) for the remaining nontrivial files.
