Junichi Uekawa asked for the contents of README.Debian.2 to go in
debian/copyright, where it belongs.

I asked about the mpeg2dec issue, as it wasn't included in the list of

Neither of us received a response.

You also probably don't want to modify the copyright statements in the
codebase itself. Let upstream deal with that, and just clarify the
license in the copyright file.
