How are you editing debian/changelog? The timestamp is old!
Also, there is no need to ship the GPL text in the package. It seems
like no patch or file tries to read the license, so no need to
(we already have the copyright file).
Uh, why do you want to have the LICENSE.txt file removed from the
upstream tarball? That seems rather blunt to me.
Ah no, you meant to not ship it in the binary package, not to remove
from the orig.tar.gz. Yes, that's a valid concern. This patch to the
Makefile should fix this:

Hans, what do you think about removing these two lines upstream? Users
are very unlikely to look these two files up in those places anyway.
README.txt and LICENSE.txt are part of the Pd library format. They
are part of the library, and the Help Browser (aka the library
browser) looks for them to display them. The library format is
basically a directory with files in it, and a subdir called
'examples'. That install target actually serves to enforce that all
the standard files are there.
In this library, I could replace the file with a symlink to ../../../
common-licenses/GPL-2, but other libraries might have different
licenses so this wouldn't always be the case.
I'll read up on the emacs changelog mode, I already have dpkg-dev-el
installed already I guess I didn't realize I needed to trigger the
