I thought this was enough..._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.

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.
