If this is technically difficult then I don't mind if it is ommitted
(but I cannot speak for Matthias), especially since copyright remains
under German law even if it is not explicitly mentioned.

The documentatation is Free Documentation. If said technical problems
would have been told openly to me, no problem at all. But this bug was
closed with "I believe the recent versions of console-setup included
your translation" with no mention of the removal of the copyright
notice which I find rather impolite.
