I was writing a response but short story : french law does'nt accept you
to give up your authoring on anything but you can give up or sell any
use of it.

In fact the french law is ; whatever you might have say, signed
contracted or whatever, you're still the author. And depending on what
you have authored, you can claim to the respect of your work.

As the common practice is to put the debian packaging stuff under the
same licence as upstream, adding the packager name in copyright has no
effect regarding french law.

Next mail was not supposed to be this on but it is

I don't know if it's possible,but in fact I don't know what should be
the upstream name.

Honnestly I don't know...

It's always benefit to have review and perhaps fresher are better...
