What do you mean by this?

Reading Policy "12.5 Copyright information" I see:

	"It should name the original authors of the package and the
	 Debian maintainer(s) who were involved with its creation."

Note the *should*.  Not a must.  Read this as "it would be nice if you
name the original author, but if you can't it's okay, too".

Yours sincerely,
