as we are also distributing the source, not just the binaries, you have to:
* either write a complete debian/copyright file covering all code
shipped within the sources.
* or, rebuild the upstream tarball and remove the things not needed.
note that i'm strongly advocating not to do that, unless you save
several megabytes on the tarball size witht hat.
note, that you will also have to document the changes you made in
debian/copyright, and, should add a '+debian' tag the upstream
version to reflect the changed upstream tarball.
