Where do I pick them up from? The git tree referenced above seems to add
to a 'WHENCE.ubuntu' file instead of the main WHENCE file.

I'm also thinking of moving to something based on
http://wiki.debian.org/Proposals/CopyrightFormat and adding extra
metadata about the earliest/latest kernels for which any given firmware
file is relevant, as well as a simple 'build' system.
