What's the problem if PEAR's LICENSE and README aren't where PEAR
expects them ?

We are maintaining a *distribution* first, so its policy should come
first, before PEAR's or I don't understand things in the right way...

I'd object to the wontfix but don't want to be rude by changing it
before I heard your arguments ;) ... and I'm not yet DD to NMU in any
case ;)

Please, can you enlighten me ?

Thanks in advance.
