Subject: madbomber: Improper copyright file
Date: Tue, 1 Nov 2005 12:57:57 -0500
Package: madbomber
Version: 0.2.4-3
Severity: normal
File: /usr/share/madbomber/copyright

The copyright file incorrectly refers to license (gpl) of the software
as the copyright.  Anything of the form "copyright: gpl" is wrong.
The gpl is a license, and cannot be a copyright holder.  You probably
want to say something of the form: "Copyright (C) 2000 William (Bill)
Kendrick <>", in addition to listing the
upstream author (since they can be different).
