"GNU PL" and "Lesser GNU PL" being the "GNU General Public License"
and "GNU Lesser General Public License" respectively, should probably
be abbreviated as "GNU GPL", and "GNU Lesser GPL" or "GNU LGPL".
DFSG could be defined as something like the following, since it might
not be immediately obvious to everyone what it means.
The license conforms to the Debian Free Software Guidelines, but
does not use one of the other DFSG conforming licenses listed.

Credit to Graham Williams for compiling the similar license list for
CTAN would be nice.
