Re: [DEP5] License field in the first paragraph ?

I would tend to not use Files: * at all in cases where I have a license in the header stanza, but instead only add Files: blocks for files with a license different than the overall license of the package. In other words, I'd use it largely like Files: *, but with the additional meaning that it covers the whole package. I think that's the sensible interpretation when there's a license in the header and no Files: * block.

Thanks for the clarification.

This matches how I (ab?)use DEP5 myself.
