See /usr/doc/copyright/GPL :-)

Anyway, "proper" documentation would mention that that's not the way to  
make a package for the Debian distribution, more important IMHO. And  
anyway, that's true for every .deb.

In fact, the *only* purposes of this thing are:

1. Make the dpkg system aware of the package. Among other things, enable  
it to remove the package.
2. Show the minimal mechanics of making a package - sort of a man page by
