Lotus5 module for JtR, copyright issues

I wanted to integrate the Lotus5 module into the Debian package of
john. Some issues were encountered in src/lotus5_fmt.c, and I'm writing you
because that's the only contact available in the source code.

1) Is Jeff Fay contactable in any way? A contact (preferably an e-mail address)
would be great, but this is not a show-stopper to me (but I should ask
debian-legal guys, to be sure)

2) A copyright holder is missing for you, your real name would be best [0]

3) A licensing statement is missing at all. Could you please choose a DFSG-free
license? Common are GPL, BSD and MIT/X11 (there are many others), but also
Public Domain is fine.

Please keep the list CCed, so that we have a public record of our mailing.

[0] this issue also popped up in various other modules where you are listed in
    the source files:
    I won't ping you regarding *this* issue on those files, but you can
    probably show up in the CC lists.
