so how should i proceed from here?

You should be _concerned_ with what copyright-check helped you
discover.  Even if dislike how it works and later trash that routine.

you misunderstood me.
i was not talking about ignoring debian/copyright_hints but instead about removing the debian/copyright_hints which contains a binary blob.

Ah, I understand now.

this is how it is now, btw.

Actually no: I changed it :-)

- file a bug-report in CDBS that it should never create binary-blobs in the copyright_newhints?

That's a different issue: changing CDBS does not make these files free.

again, the problem is a 2-fold:
- - binary files containing copyright files (can be fixed by upstream)
- - licensecheck extracts binary blobs from binary files and puts them
into debian/copyright_newhints (must be fixed in licensecheck)

i suggested to file a bugreport because of the 2nd issue (which i know think is not a cdbs problem but a devscripts (licensecheck) problem)

No, I do not think it is a licensecheck issue: licensecheck by default scans only some "common source files".

So the issue - which I do not consider a bug, but I do invite you to try change my mind - is with CDBS and is best discussed there IMHO.

still licensecheck generates a binary blob in debian/copyright_newhints.
i guess it is because it finds "©" and then extracts the "line".

Yes, that is correct.

so the (2nd) problem is not fixed even though the problematic files are

Try "git pull" and tell me if you feel that is still true.

Kind regards,
