This licensing violates our guidelines. That said, the only files in the
repository are packaging information produced by Murano developers. They
probably don't have to mirror the upstream license the way they
currently do, so I feel like this could be (and should be) solved.

openstack/vmtp is not an "official" OpenStack project.

Yeah, probably needs to be fixed as well (if Fuel continues within the
Big Tent), looks like various leftovers from merge of internal code,
rather than intended (or necessary) licensing.
