Re: DEP-5 and files with white spaces

For the encoding, this is not a problem limited to the machine-readable
format. If the Debian copyright file is in an encoding A, and one file
has a name or is in a directory that has a name in an encoding B that
can not be represented in A, and that there is no way to escape this
problem with wildcards, that the file or directory can not be described
by its name regardless of the syntax followed by the copyright file.
Not true. You can say “all the files are…” in a plain English copyright
file. You can't say that in a DEP-5 copyright file.
