$ dlocate /copy|sed s/.*://|xargs grep -l Temple|wc -l
shows at least 216 packages still say Temple Place in their copyright
snippet, no matter how short. Even though GNU now lives on Franklin St.

I Didn't check /COPY... nor packages not installed on my system, nor
did I check for other old addresses.

       `/usr/share/common-licenses/LGPL' respectively, rather than quoting
!      them in the copyright file.  /usr/share/common-licenses/* will
!      contain current office addresses, so don't quote them in the
!      copyright file.

But wait, even policy.txt says Temple Place!!
$ zgrep Temple  /usr/share/doc/debian-policy/policy.txt.gz

        Specifying incorrect office addresses is a bug; and the
 solution is to fix the bugs, nit to say that the address should be
 elided. Additionally, with the correct office address a user may
 still get hold of the license from a canonical location even if they
 do not have access to a running Debian system, which is a good thing.

Your project will be late.
