Sounds like only the debian/copyright file needs to be sorted out.   
That's just a matter of checking out all of the various copyright  
lines listed in the bug report then listing them in the debian/ 
copyright file, which license applies (ie. GPL, BSD, etc), and which  
files are covered by that copyright.  Then submit that package update  
to the bug report.

Anyone up for taking that on?
