Very nice!

Some comments:
- I thought we established that GNU GPL without a version equals GNU GPLv2
- I'm not sure what a 2-level search is and why the number of levels should be 2
- Why report cases of patents and reverse engineering? I thought gNewSense didn't care about patents and I believe there's nothing wrong with reverse engineering.

About the comments;
- I didn't know that it was established that GNU GPL without a version equals to GNU GPLv2 but i think is better if we confirm that is GNU GPLv2 from the copyright holder. If you check closer when there is no one to ask to confirm, it goes to the global kernel license, GNU GPLv2.
I think is the correct way to proceed, maybe not the faster.

- Sorry i should explain this, the 2-level search is when we don't have the information at hand, and we have to search for it.

We start in point "A" that tell us to follow "B" and that to "C".
 A --> B ---> C
 from A --> C, is what i call a 2-level search.
License or copyright holder mail search. Maybe is a long search, but it stablishes that we did the necesary effort get the clearest licence of the package.

- I did read something about gnewsense refusing software patents, maybe i should check closer,  reverse engineering is fine, even though some manufactures takes that as illegal. So i thought is better to confirm with the list, and avoid personal assumptions.
