Let me try to explain this to you in sufficiently small words, then:
The operator of the one and only known archive of open-source PalmOS
code (Yr. Humble Correspondent) checks projects' Web pages, if any, for
licence statements and source code archives alongside the binaries.
In some of the more ambiguous cases, he downloads whatever packages are
available, and takes a quick peek to see if there appear to be binaries
without matching source.
Ambiguous situations, such as this one, sometimes lead to overlooking
packages with unclear documentation. Because, of course, although I
devote as much time as I see fit to the project, I must also reserve
some for arguing with officious gits on mailing lists.

...it would impair the list's atmosphere of decorum to discuss them.
