Description: Openconnect package features incorrect license

Additional info:
I was troubleshooting an issue on the openconnect mailing list, and posted the Arch package information for openconnect (output of pacman -Qi) and the proper license listing for the openconnect project is LGPLv2.1, not GPL as listed on the package.

Thread, for reference:

Their website confirms:

"OpenConnect is released under the GNU Lesser Public License, version 2.1."

I would have just contacted the maintainer/packager, but wasn't sure how. Easy fix, and I thought I'd pass along the information.
This task depends upon
