We don't require that you add any missing license files in these
scenarios. You might want to recommend that upstream include a copy of
the license, but as long as the license appears in the source code, this
is not required (for BSD).

The rule is:
If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s)
in its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s)
for the package, must be included as documentation.

Need to run that one past the lawyers... it is worded strangely.
