Well-meaning authors can go look at similar packages already
in main and check the copyright file. That would be much better
advice, IMO. Actually, the copyright files are all linked from
packages.debian.org now.

If anyone thinks it's a good idea to generate indexes from
copyright files, I'm happy to help, but I don't have a local
debian mirror to play with.

CC 2.0 was definitely not before DLS. I'll take your word on the
FDL/DLS timing. The 1997 DLS date shown on the web is clearly fake.
