Hmm, that looks better.  Weird.

But just judging from , I wouldn't
have thought that that was under MIT license.  The only mention there
is in the DESCRIPTION file.  Is that enough for Guix?

Could you open an issue on asking
them to put an Expat license file into the project if that's their intention?

for that package.
