New: "cme run paste-license script" (was: Re: pasting license text into debian/copyright)


People have complained that adding license text in debian/copyright file is 

To avoid this problem, libconfig-model-dpkg-perl 2.102 now ships a new cme 
script to copy a license text in debian/copyright. This script is run with 
"cme run" command [1]

For instance:

$ echo -e "blah\n\nblah\n\nblah"  > my-lic.txt
$ cme run paste-license  --arg license=MyTest --arg file=my-lic.txt
cme: using Dpkg::Copyright model
License MyTest is not used in Files: section

paste STDIN: cat MIT.txt | cme run paste-license --arg license=Expat

Please ignore a warning message about missing initialisation of Log4Perl. This 
is harmless and will be fixed soon.

I hope this command will be useful to help you in your packaging activities.

All the best
