Bug#516190: Several modules and files are GPL licensed, not LGPL.

Package: python-gst0.10
Version: 0.10.12-1.1
Severity: important

Some files are licensed under the GPL (see below). Because eg. pygst is
GPL licensed, you can't use python-gst0.10 in programs not compatible
with the GPL. This should be fixed upstream.

Furthermore, these licenses are not listed in debian/copyright, which
violates section 4.5 of the Policy.

Files (in 0.10.14) licensed under the GPL, there may be more:

  ./gstltihooks.py: GPL (v2 or later) (with incorrect FSF address) 
  ./common/coverage/coverage-report.pl: GPL (v2 or later) (with incorrect FSF address) 
  ./common/coverage/coverage-report-entry.pl: GPL (v2 or later) (with incorrect FSF address) 
  ./common/gstdoc-scangobj: GPL (v2 or later) (with incorrect FSF address) 
  ./pygst.py.in: GPL (v2 or later) (with incorrect FSF address)

This also applies to the version I use, ie. the version in stable.
