Package: devscripts
Version: 2.18.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

when I tried the --copy option of uscan as described in the manpage, it
didn't quite work as expected:

| $ uscan --copy
| Option copyright-file requires an argument
| uscan die: Usage: uscan [options] [directories]
| Run uscan --help for more details

No surprise after looking into the code: There no definition for "copy"
in the GetOption invocation (ca. l.2204), only "copyright-file" which
requires an argument, resulting in the error message above.

Could you please check what is supposed to happen here?
