Those copyright files are supposed to have more than just the LICENSE
text in them and actually should just have a pointer to
/usr/share/common-licenses for the license text if it is one of the ones
listed in that dir.


This package was debianized by Foo Developer <foo@debian.org> on

It was downloaded from http://localhost/somedir/somefile.tar.gz

Upstream Author(s): Someone <someone@somewhere.org>

(License Text or location of a common license in /usr/share/common-licenses)
