The first step would be to make a better list. I just did a first look,
so I've probably left packages behind. Also, some of the packages in
the list are already dual licensed, but the packager listed them wrong.

As an example: front page says:
"BioPerl is distributed under the Perl Artistic License. For more
information, see _licensing_BioPerl_."
But when you go to _licensing_BioPerl_, they say: "BioPerl is licensed
under the same terms as Perl itself, which means it is dually-licensed
under either the Artistic or GPL licenses."

The debian packager didn't go that deep, and I carried the mistake on.
