I will admit that the situation of Swazoo on SM is *extremely* confusing 
at this point. The package named "Swazoo" is being marked as owned by 
Janko, does not have a license in the top-level page and lists LGPL for 
the individual releases. So far, so good.

However, the packages named "Swazoo-HTTP", "Swazoo-Listener", and 
"Swazoo-Server" instead are listed as owned by Avi Bryant, list MIT in 
the top-level page, and either "other" or no license in the individual 
releases. This seems to be a complete mess.

Unfortunately, requesting that Janko change these packages is beyond his 
control. You need to talk to Avi about changing that to LGPL if that's 
the appropriate license because he is the only listed maintainer of 
these packages.
