My understanding was that you only *had* to provide a written license if 
the upstream supplied one. I could be wrong tho....

My libedit package is an example of this, no upstream license, but its 
been approved and is currently packaged with out a license file.

I would recommend that Victor requests a license to be provided in the 
future (I did this for libedit), but the written license is only 
required if one is already supplied.
