Yes, you did, although I’m wondering if it is actually correct: The
debian/ directory (if copyrightable at all, which I doubt) is clearly a
derived work of the tepmlate-debian directory, and should thus always
have the same license. Also, the copyright holder should be the same,
and not necessarily the person copying the debian/ directory (is that
itself already a copyrightable act)....

But then, lets just leave it like this and carry on with real work,
unless someone is keen on working on a correct solution that involves no
more work than now for everyone else.
