Er, what else is there to say but that what I said above? It says that you
should adjust the string "Upstream Author(s)" in your copyright file, isn't
it obvious? And isn't it obvious that it is left to you to change it the way
you like it[1], since there is no specific format mentioned?

[1] as long as it's not 'Upstream Author(s)' :) and since this was deemed too
pedantic, it's been removed.
