If it's a Debian package in main, it's reasonably safe to assume that
the packaging has been placed under a DFSG-free license that permits
copying.  For completeness, your debian/copyright file should document
the copyright of the packaging itself, if it's substantial enough to
warrant separate copyright.

With translations, IME the accepted practice is to identify the
contributors in the changelog.  I'm not sure how this would mesh with
translations borrowed from another package; I presume as long as the
original .po source file still contains attribution, most translators
are ok with this.

That's a rather troubling error.  Does something in your package *link*
to libgds.so?  What does 'file' say about the format of this file, if
dpkg-shlibdeps doesn't recognize it?
