Each package with translations has several dozens of copyright holder,
we don't have to keep that list in the copyright file, do we ?

I understand that we have to be picky for packages where problems can be
expected, but in general the copyright file should not reproduce the list
of all the copyright holders. I suggest that it points to the relevant
files (AUTHORS and similar).
