Package: erlang-doc-html
Severity: serious


It seems your package contains non-free RFC/I-Ds:


The license on I-Ds is not DFSG-free, see:

I believe the options are:

1) Remove the file from the package (which may include re-packaging
   the source code).

2) Move the files to a non-free package (which may also include
   re-packaging the source code).

If you disagree with this, because this bug is reported for several
packages at once, it seems better to discuss this on debian-legal, in
this thread:

The severity is serious, because this violates the Debian policy

I'm sorry if this report is filed in error, I went over many packages
looking for suspicious filenames, and there may be false positives.
