still one more issue: the copyright file

the debian policy[1] said you should provide the verbatim copy of the
copyright file, for GPL-2 you should keep following paragraphs:

    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.

    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of

    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
    with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
    51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.

there is a proposed copyright format in [2], you also can use that format.
