Note to self: suppress this warning when -ui is none

Note that this message is just a warning.

This warning is normal when migrating older copyright files

This one is more problematic and is the real cause of config-edit failure. 
That's one of the older keywords I did not know about. I will add it as a 
deprecated parameter for the next release. Its content will then be moved
to Upstream-Contact parameter.

In the meantime, you can shoudl update this parameter with your favorite editor.

DEP5 model knows the list of keywords specified in DEP5 [1], which are the most 
commonly used. There's currently a long thread in debian-project list about 
managing the license keywords.

In your case, either this keyword must be added to the list in 
DEP5 or you can choose to ignore the warning. 

Thanks for trying config-model and for your feedback :-)

    In theory. In practice, I've just noticed that my list of licence keywords is not 
    accurate :-/ I'll fix this ASAP.
