The --copyright command of the wpkg tool prints out the copyright information of a Debian package when available (the file is supposed to be mandatory, but packages can be built without it.)

When creating a package, you are expected to include a copyright notice in this file:


where <package-name> is exactly as defined in the Package field.

The --build command verifies that this file exists. If not, then a warning is generated (Note: Not Yet Implemented; although the error was in place, I commented it out at this time because in many cases no copyright notice is available.)
