Bug#432587: ITP: camlp4s -- Pre Processor Pretty Printer for OCaml - classical version

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stefano Zacchiroli <zack@debian.org>

* Package name    : camlp4s
  Version         : 4.03
  Upstream Author : Daniel de Rauglaudre <daniel.de_rauglaudre@inria.fr>
* URL             : http://cristal.inria.fr/~ddr/camlp4s/
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: OCaml
  Description     : Pre Processor Pretty Printer for OCaml - classical version

   Objective Caml (OCaml) is an implementation of the ML language,
   based on the Caml Light dialect extended with a complete
   class-based object system and a powerful module system in the
   style of Standard ML.
   CamlP4 is a Pre-Processor-Pretty-Printer for Objective Caml. It
   offers tools for syntax (Stream Parsers and Grammars) and the
   ability to modify the concrete syntax of the language
   (Quotations, Syntax Extensions).
   This package contains the "classical" version of CamlP4
   executables and libraries for pre-processing and pretty-printing
   OCaml sources both interactively and in a batch fashion. The
   "classical" version is the implementation of CamlP4 which used
   to be distributed with OCaml before the release of version 3.10.

This version of CamlP4 is already distribute in Debian as part of OCaml
(<< 3.10). Starting from 3.10 (currently available in experimental, but
targeted at Lenny) the shipped version of CamlP4 was reimplemented and
is not backward compatible with the previous one. Hence the former
author of CamlP4 started distributing his implementation (the
"classical" one) under the new name of CamlP4s. This ITP targets that
classical version.

Question time: the license is BSD, but is not identical to the text I
find in /usr/share/common-licenses/BSD as the Copyright is different
(INRIA vs Universify of California). Can I point to our license file in
debian/copyright nonetheless, given that we have a specific copyright
"field" in such file?
