And the GitLab thing then will be unmaintained if these files end up in
LibreOffice proper?

Because if it isn't it is still an external project, also like all the
Document Libreration libraries which for some the only user is LO. Or

If it's maintained external it's a external project and should be
packaged as such, and then the points I mentioned *are* relevant for
packaging it up.

If it's supposed to be *moved* over to LO, you are right in that the
license may be OK. If it's supposed to be *copied* and maintained on
gitlab before at some time again copying it, the points matter.

It does not matter what is part of LO or whatnot. Your repository on
gitlab contains non-free stuff :)

What is not "part of the LO sources" is irrelevant for the project
itself, anyway. That one should have proper licensing too.
