Bug#378654: Missing upstream copyright holder name in /usr/share/doc/busybox/copyright
Justification: Policy 12.5
The Debian policy requires the copyright file to hold the upstream
copyright information. I know that it is an agregate of many packages,
each with its own author, thus making copyright asertion difficult.
I know that the upstream author of the actual agregate package is also
the Debian package maintainer.
A suggested fix is in the attached patch
