All versions of albert after v0.14.21 are no longer licensed as GPL and no longer qualify as free or opensource software.
Please update license accordingly.
I’m the maintainer (from proxy-maintainers).
I dont want to bother with a pull request just for this.
Can a Gentoo dev set the LICENSE in v0.17.2 ebuild to "all-rights-reserved"?
See my latest comment on the github issue there. As far as I can tell, the software illegally infringes on the GPL-only rights of some fairly large external contributions.

x11-misc/albert: Set LICENSE to all-rights-reserved for now
Also add mirror and bindist restriction, because this comes without
any license, so Gentoo mirrors cannot distribute it.

The tarball doesn't contain any license, so we cannot distribute it. So I've added a mirror restriction.

If that should turn out to be true, we may have to drop the package entirely. However, has any of these contributors spoken up?
