Could we? Sebastian? That would be really really really great.
I could include it into the texlive Debian packages and make even the
most bastard DD content with a full copyright file, and for the others
it would be also usefull to know the license.

Is it possible to add this easily to the tpm generation script and make
a run?

I will check what I have and what they have and then see wethere there
is a difference. Thanks for informing me on this.
