Default DEP5 Copyright Question


I understand that a DEP5 copyright file lists licenses and copyrights
for files in the debian source package directory, rather than for files
that are installed by the generated .deb.

Does that mean that files that are *generated* during execution of
debian/rules (e.g. rendered documentation) do not need to be included in
the copyright file?

If they have to be included: isn't that slightly inconsistent? If one
wants to have the copyright for all *installed* files (rather than all
shipped files), shouldn't the files then also be listed relative to the
system root (rather than the source package directory)?
