[pkg-kolab] license of schema files

Hello debian-legal and openldap maintainers,

the upstream kolabd package includes rfc2739.schema:


kolabd was rejected by ftpmaster because of this schema license text
(this schema is now removed but it would be better to get it included

However, this
#  document itself may not be modified in any way, such as by removing
#  the copyright notice or references to the Internet Society or other
#  Internet organizations, except as needed for the purpose of
#  developing Internet standards in which case the procedures for
#  copyrights defined in the Internet Standards process must be
#  followed, or as required to translate it into languages other than
#  English.

"document itself may not be modified in any way" is the main point. The
following are examples and more information. It looks like its just a
copy of a RFC license e.g. ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc2821.txt

The text is the same like the one from core.schema from openldap2.2


Can anybody tell me what to do:
a. include rfc2739.schema because its like core.schema?
b. write a bug against openldap2.2 because they have the same problem?
c. maybe it rfc releated and need waiting for RFC license discussion (i
dont know the status of it)?
d. something else?

Thank you.
