Since it ever existed, I wrote my debian/copyright file using the
new format. It's quite well established, and it isn't hard to do
the switch. It is just a bit boring work though.

I do think it would be nice to be able to parse all of the
archive to know what kind of license we're using. If we all work
a bit on our own packages, it should be fine, and at some
point, we should move forward. But does anyone think it is
too much work? I would understand that point of view.

Thoughts anyone?
