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).

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
