Is there any special formatting or is it more or less "mention license(s) for 
any file distributed in the package" ?

Looking at some other packages I found that most seem to have a short copy of 
the license and state something like.

Some files in this package are licences e.g. GPL
Other files are licensed LGPL
Even other files are licensed Public domain.

Is this enough or is there a need to correlate the files with their license in 
the copyright file ?

One way could be to check which libs Ginkgo uses and name those libs and their 
license. The files that make up Ginkgo itself could be checked easier and 
upstream could give some input on this.
