_Above_ is insufficient proof.

Proof announced on this mailinglist or listed at some website is not
proof included in debian/copyright file.

Maybe I was not clear, but I assumed the v2+ from the COPYING.LIB
containing the LGPL-2+ text, shipped with the upstream tarball (it's
present also in the orig.tar of the libzzip package by the way).
Isn't this enough?

_Above_ does not contain that info.

I fail to locate a COPYING.LIB inside of the zziplib subdir, and even if it existed, we would need to add a Comment: stating that we *assume* that to be the licensing which is too vaguely described in the embedded licensing statements themselves.

We need to be explicit in debian/copyright.

No - that only talks about GPL-2+ and LGPL-2.1, not LGPL-2.

They are not much different AFAIK, I think the v2 weren't listed for this
reason... but a request on debian-legal would be the safest solution.

I suggest first resolving for sure which version(s) of LGPL is actually ised throughout this codebase, and then (if still relevant) ask d-legal.
