Hi,
I've added a few more license mappings, such as:

'GPL (v3 or later)' => 'GPL-3+'

prompted by trying to get the copyright file for freeswitch to be somewhere near complete. That also required some patches to licensecheck from devscripts, but mostly getting it to shut up about false positives, so this patch should be fine even with an unpatched licensecheck.

You may also find useful the .yml file I've written to make this work for freeswitch:

http://git.hands.com/?p=freeswitch.git;a=blob;f=debian/license-reconcile.yml;h=0e40cba01eeb67f82d18ca8f11210271848d0549;hb=refs/heads/copyright2

and this branch where that file exists:

http://git.hands.com/?p=freeswitch.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/copyright2

I think some of the special cases I've put in the .yml are not really that special, so should be handled by license-reconcile by default, but either couldn't see a clean way to do it, or just worked out that it was easily fixable in the .yml and went for the quick fix.

Cheers, Phil.
