Ok, I updated the debian/copyright and pushed the changes to git.debian.org. Its ready for re-upload.I just wanted to add that the previous condition was legal, LGPL-2.1 files can be incorporated into a GPL-2 project, so it was correct to say that the whole project could be used under the GPL-2. It is not correct to say that the whole library could be used under the LGPL-2.1 though, only some of the files, if used in isolation.
Legal, yes: The licenses are indeed compatible.The issue, though, is about Policy compliance: §4.5 requires including "verbatim" copies of licensing - meaning that even if we legally are allowed to relicense under different compatible terms, we limit ourselves to only _reuse_ upstream licensing.
