It meets a problem I have for a long time. I take a program. I add some 
Debian-specific files (programconfig, postinst, etc). What is the licence of 
these files? Can anyone take my work and close it, for instance?

Note that I do not mention the patches I make to the original files. I refer 
only to the new files added. What is the licence of a Debian package, if the 
original (upstream) licence is Berkeley-style, for instance?
