GNU Gcal v3.01, debian file gcal-3.01.1-7.diff

Dear Debian maintainer of the GNU Gcal package,

I'm the author of the GNU Gcal package and today
I looked into the Debian release modification
file 'gcal-3.01.1-8.diff'.  There are two things
in this file that patches my original package as
distributed by the FSF's server I do not agree with;

--- gcal-3.01.1.orig/debian/copyright
+++ gcal-3.01.1/debian/copyright
@@ -0,0 +1,43 @@
+This is Debian GNU/Linux's prepackaged version of the GNU cal utility.
+It was taken over by Edward Betts <edward@debian.org> on
+Sat, 13 Nov 1999 14:25:53 +0000
+    Program Copyright (C) 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997 Thomas Esken.
+    Modifications for Debian Copyright (C) 2001 Edward Betts.

Please be so kind and add the year 2000 also to the Progam
Copyright line as Debian distributes the 3.01 version of
Gcal (released in the year 2000).

Next, continuing with the above 'debian/copyright' file:

+    Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA.
+On Debian GNU/Linux systems, the complete text of the GNU General
+Public License can be found in `/usr/share/common-licenses/GPL'.
+Manual (gcal.info) Copyright (C) 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997 Thomask Esken.
+Permission is granted to make and distribute verbatim copies of this

My name ist Thomas Esken, not Thomask Esken.
Please corret this!  And also please insert the year 2000
in the Copyright line.

Tkank you.

BTW, please be so kind and report all bugs that are reported to you
by users and major issues you've faced with this package during
installation or maintainance tasks to the author of this package by
sending an eMail to Thomas Esken <esken@gmx.net>, if this fails, send
an eMail to <bug-gcal@gnu.org> -- and please don't forget to insert the
word *Gcal* on the subject line of the eMail.  Your report helps a lot
to improve Gcal!  Thank you in advance.
