this(!), and you also don't have to repeat detailed copyright ownership information in debian/copyright - it's fine if that information is scattered along these files itself, as long as these files are under the same licence and debian/copyright states this licence and the copyright owners as a whole, (even) optionally refering to the individual files.


debian/copyright is just a useful summary.


listing each and every copyright owner for thousands of files in debian/copyright (and updating them, on every release) serves no useful purpose whatsoever.


please, think of the kittens! :-)
