Re: License for Debian Maintainer Scripts

If the copyright holder in those files grants one, yes.

The copyright holders for the maintainer scripts (and all the other
Debian packaging files) are often the package maintainers.

For free software, this forum normally recommends that the Debian
packaging copyright holders should choose to grant the same license to
the Debian packaging files as the general license for the upstream work.
