Good.  Let's include that in debian/copyright.

I suspect, however, that "This version of the Csound Manual" does not cover the complete work. You mentioned yourself in the earlier non-DEP5 copyright file that some parts were GPL (or was it LGPL?).

Some helper scripts are GPL or LGPL, like the one to convert csd files to docbook xml for inclusion in the manual. The rest is all GFDL.

Do upstream explicitly state so somehwere (which we can then quote), or how do you come to the conclusion that "rest is all GFDL"?

Hmm, I don't think so. However, the tarball contains 2 things. The manual and helper scripts. The manual is GFDL and the helper scripts each have an explicit license statement.

Easy to then ask upstream for a statement that all parts of the tarball except those parts explicitly noted as GPL or LGPL.

IMO not acceptable to assume as-is, due to the many participants involved.

Kind regards,
