Re: DEP-5 and files with white spaces

For the encoding, this is not a problem limited to the machine-readable format. If the Debian copyright file is in an encoding A, and one file has a name or is in a directory that has a name in an encoding B that can not be represented in A, and that there is no way to escape this problem with wildcards, that the file or directory can not be described by its name regardless of the syntax followed by the copyright file.

Not true. You can say “all the files are…” in a plain English copyright file. You can't say that in a DEP-5 copyright file.
