I had took it from kdoctools template if I remember correctly. That was before
the change of license and I have missed the comment when reviewing the
change of license.

I have fixed the comment.

I have added an explicit message about the current brokenness of the UPnP/DLNA support.

I plan to move the UPnP library to KDE infrastructure. I need to properly document it and
add a lot of missing automatic tests. This is why it is not yet done. It would be nice to
make it a proper framework.

I have updated the readme. I still do not know if it is possible to properly
check for them at build time

I have signed the two alpha release with one key that I have exported.
This the key I am using:

Public key: Fingerprint=267B F70F 7905 C272 3B02  4326 7D0F 74F0 5C22 F553
