Is this script under copyright or in the public domain?

It can't be both at the same time.

Personally I would suggest using CC0 or a permissive license instead.

You are right, I have overseen that. As regards the licensing conditions, I followed what is specified in the COPYING [1] and d/copyright [2] files.

@Ana: This reply should create a new bug report. Could you please fix the header of the update-bug-list.py script by applying the patch attached to this message?
