I read a little about these Google GWT
( and Google GIN

pieces of software are licensed asl2.0. From what I could tell reading
the documentation for GWT, it doesn't appear to need to be

The same thing happens with GIN, but I have never used either of these
tools so I'm in the dark with respect to their typical behavior. I tried
to build both of these packages, but I don't really know what I'm
doing. I put the package definitions I wrote in a snippet on the Debian
pastebin here:

Maybe it may at least save someone a minute or two?
