DEP 5 <URL:http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/> is Debian's standard for
the ‘debian/copyright’ content.
Note that “CC0” is not *quite* the same thing as “public domain”, since
it isn't clear whether it actually results in a work entering the public
domain; and some jurisdictions simply don't have the “public domain”
concept. See <URL:http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/#public-domain>.
The CC0 declaration has its own keyword for the License field, see
<URL:http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep5/#license-specification>. Use that
keyword in the synopsis, and show the text granting the CC0 on the work
in the body of the License field.
