I would be happy to quote you on "the default license is in effect", I
believe it would be enough to get wireshark accepted into Debian.

This is about those files:

  epan/epan.c
  epan/exceptions.h
  epan/dfilter/gencode.h
  epan/dfilter/glib-util.c
  epan/dfilter/glib-util.h
  epan/dissectors/packet-bootparams.h
  epan/dissectors/packet-mount.h
  epan/dissectors/packet-nfs.h
  epan/dissectors/packet-nlm.h
  epan/dissectors/packet-x11-keysym.h
  gtk/win32-file-dlg.h
  tools/lemon/cppmagic.h

Also there are two other files missing details, where it would just
need confirmation:
  - epan/in_cksum.h, but in_cksum.c is marked BSD
  - epan/dfilter/grammar.h, but grammar.c is marked LGPL

The last remaining problem is epan/dissectors/packet-diameter-defs.h
which is noted copyright (c) 2005 by Anders Broman and has no license
attached.

I would prefer to get wireshark in now and this just needs a quick
answer for the files listed above.  Please take the time.



Thanks,
