OpenVAS-client was REJECTED, again, due to missing licenses / copyright
statements from the source.

It would be nice if other's could assist in determining:

- which authors have (c) over the code besides Renaud Deraison, DN-Systems
  GmbH and Intevation GmbH

- which files are not under the GPL license (this includes LGPL, GPLv2 but
  not any later) etc..
I can do the license/copyright audit by myself, but it can take some time...

Hi Maintainer,

rejected, your debian/copyright file is incomplete and misses
(C)holders/license data. You have to include all such differences.

There are many files licensed under LGPL, not GPL. Like the whole
libnessus/, some files in include/ and some more in the nessus/ at least.

You also have a mix of GPL v2 only and GPL v2 or later files...

Also, where is the source for nessus/test.pdf, which is created with
some htmldoc?

There is also gdchart source included, with its own license. Also -
please make sure to not use that included copy, but build-depend (and
use) the gd stuff from the archive.

bye Joerg
