[texhax] Where does package doclicense live in TeXLive?

The doclicense package is just over a month old, so it's entirely
possible that none of the Debian and Gentoo maintainers/packagers have
picked up on its release and added it to one of the distro packages.
Two quick Google searches seem to confirm this, but I could be wrong.
Searching Google for

    doclicense.sty site:debian.org


    doclicense.sty site:gentoo.org

show no relevant results. Searching this way for a file known to be
included in a distro package (Google "mhchem.sty site:debian.org", for
example) returns the web page for the file list of the distro's
package containing this CTAN package. If you do not want to go the
manual update route, I think you should contact the distro's
maintainer/packager for TeX Live to ask about having it added.

If anyone has better advice, please feel free to chime in—I'm by no
means an expert on Linux packaging requests!
