Moreover, it's not acceptable for a Debian upload (and IMHO hardly
acceptable for providing an archive for download) to mix in one archive
GPL'ed and PD files, without clearly listing which is which.  After all,
PD means "you can do anything", while the GPL is Copyleft, or in other
words one of the most restrictive Open Source licenses.

And, in particular, something which explains in 5 lines why one would
want to use ConTeXt instead of LaTeX.
