Thanks for your excellent article. It is IMO a very valuable
contribution to this conversation.
Also, I can find nothing in it to disagree with :-).

Personally, I think it would be much better if binary packages had
accurate centrally findable statements of their authorship
information. For the purposes of giving credit (which is something I
_want_ us to be doing) rather than some kind of legal compliance.
But there are many many things that I think Debian could do much
better. I certainly don't feel I personally want to put doing this
work anywher enear the top of my personal Debian todo list list (or
even my to-do-sometime-maybe list).
