I have a project with over 4,000 source files. It is 15 years old, so some of those files have 4 or 5 copyright notices in them from contributors over the years. Assuming I can coerce grep or awk to do it, the debian/copyright file would wind up being over 20,000 lines long! No-one will ever read it, plus it duplicates information already in the source package. On the other hand, one line for each contributor means less than a dozen lines, which makes far more sense IMHO. But, again, it duplicates information in the AUTHORS file. -- Regards Peter Miller <firstname.lastname@example.org> /\/\* http://miller.emu.id.au/pmiller/ PGP public key ID: 1024D/D0EDB64D fingerprint = AD0A C5DF C426 4F03 5D53 2BDB 18D8 A4E2 D0ED B64D See http://www.keyserver.net or any PGP keyserver for public key.
