The section is reported in Alexander Schmehl e-mail...

The fact is that the holder of copyright is not a real person...
but one friend sent me a link to a Debian discussion about a package:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/1999/09/msg00057.html

that take, as example, proftpd package... I read the debian/copyright of 
proftpd package and the copyright field is:
==
 * ProFTPD - FTP server daemon
 * Copyright (c) 1997, 1998 Public Flood Software
 *
 * This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
 * it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
 * the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
 * (at your option) any later version.
...

Having a 'old' package that doe not have a real person as copyright holder 
gives me a chance to send k9copy and vamps package in Debian :D

I'll send two RFS... 
having these packages in Debian is better than in a unofficial repository!

Thank you!
