The jquery.js is installed by doxygen in the documentation process.  It
does not belong to the source package (the full autogenerated
documentation provided by upstream was intentionally removed to avoid
compressed JS files).  I wonder why I should add licenses of files that
are not part of the source package and do not even have an idea how I
could do this syntactically correctly - lintian would claim an unused
copyright paragraph and IMHO lintian is correct here.

Kind regards
