It seems there is a bug lurking; you should have gotten a failure for
whichever package you didn't stick the license in ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES,
not a scan failure.

Other than having to hav py3X-scons not installed when you build
mongodb3, and perhaps a desire to get rid of python 27 from yuor system,
is there any real problem?

I didn't realize that 6 uses mongodb4 -- I was only holding off because
of 1) lack or roun tuits 2) no urgent problem using 5 still and 3) still
a bit scared after seeing reports that the first release or two of 6
worked badly enough that people lost the ability to admin their
networks.   Now I am down to 1, but such a change is too disruptive just
before the branch.

I am unclear on the mongo 4 license and how problematic it is -- whether
it is merely not open source or truly problematic.  I remember a fairly
big kerfluffle when it came out.  Of course, the net/unifi license is
not open source, but that's not from a company whose home page seems to
try to sell proprietary licenses to an open-core product but does not
contain the words "open source" or "free software".

Debian has declined to accept it as DFSG-free:

But, we are only talking about adding unifi6 and maybe dropping 5,
nothing more.  So there is probably not a reason to do anything other
than update (with adequate functional testing).
