unzip.h and unzip.c files in source packages.

Dear all,

while reviewing an Ubuntu package that we are considering to submit to the NEW
queue for inclusion in Debian, I found a copy of source files from the
‘minizip’ package, that was not mentionned in debian/copyright.

Suspecting that it could have been overlooked by many others, I had a look at
source.debian.net and checked a couple of packages randomly.


Indeed, this file was undeclared in some of the packages I checked, including
one from me (velvet).

The conclusion is that we should either change our policy on copyright
documentation (that goes further than what is required by some licenses),
or double-check our packages.

Have a nice day,
