thanks for the hint.
i noticed that upstream's README.txt includes several more authors, which do not appear in any source file and definitely not (yet) in debian/changelog

Please have a look at the changes I pushed just now, especially the
FIXMEs in debian/copyright and the rephrasings in changelog.

debian/copyright looks good (apart from that it looks ugly, but i guess
this is the price for machine readability :-))

Yeah, that's a common first reaction to DEP5 format. Often what is really the case, however, is that more info is added, which written old-style would have been even less readable.

Or perhaps I have simply grown used to this new format, having worked on it for don't know how long - a couple of years, I think.

does anything need to be done about the FIXMEs?


After I stomped the topmost one about source URL (puredata.info was down earlier today, apparently), there are now 2 FIXMEs left.

Upper one is obviously a typo, so not a show-stopper. I would suggest you fix it upstream for your next release, though (if not claiming copyright in 22nd century is some artistic logo).

Lower one I would appreciate if at least you could clarify - just here as an email on this mailinglist, so we have it for the record:

Under which license do Winfried Ritsch license his contributions to src/sfplay.c?

debian/changelog looks also very good.

Ahh, thanks.  I was worried you perhaps wouldn't appreciate it :-)
