I'm not sure whether there's a formal policy, but I think that's an
upstream bug.  Not only because the license is in there, but generally
because README files sometimes are really meant for what their name

Not having looked at the new infrastructure, I don't know whether this
needs to be fixed by hand, and how.  Does anyone know?

For debian-legal, I claim that this is sufficient, but adding the README
would be nice (and luckily the "extra license file" lintian error isn't
triggered by READMEs ;-)).

Ralf, could you find the time and add that to the text of individual
licenses in all/debian/copyright, once that I've committed my changes
and the existing license texts are at their place?
