Thanks, didn't know that.

Me too, epically on reviews. ;)

None that I know of. The package owner told me a different story on IRC
and I was under the impression that the reviewer did not spot the
problem.
For me it is ok to say "fix this before import", at least if the
packager is experienced enough.

I didn't do that, sorry if it sounded like this. I just say "a lot of
reviews". AFAICT RH people are known to do a lot of 3-word-revievs
("looks fine. Approved")

Yes, the package is GPLv2+ but GPLv2.

Correct, but IMO there should always be a %doc line, at least for the
usual stuff like AUTHORS, COPYING, ChangeLog etc.
