I don't mind either way. I looked at the other package, and I agree it
is nice in this case where not all authors are copyright holders.
I'm too new to debian to say whether debian/copyright is the correct
place for this. What I would like is if my non group-maintained
packages would use the same copyright format; for someone seeking
sponsors, it is one less thing to be left up to sponsor preference.
Is anyone here involved with
enough to speak to the idea of codifying (or not) the Upstream author
information in the debian/copyright format?
Of course, the pkg-perl group can always make up its own mind.
all the best,
