Default Bug#687841: java-common: please explicitly state copyright and license in Java Policy

Package: java-common
Version: 0.47
Severity: wishlist

Hello java-common maintainers!

It is my understanding that the Debian policy for Java [1] is
currently part of the java-common package, and thus licensed
under the GNU GPL v2 or later, as documented in the debian/copyright
file [2].
Very good, this is important, especially in light of the future
plan to integrate it into the (general) Debian Policy Manual [3].

On the other hand, the copyright and licensing status of the
Debian policy for Java is not very clear, when this document
is viewed online from the Debian website [1].

Please include a clear "Copyright Notice" section (immediately
after the "Abstract" section) in order to explicitly state
the copyright and license for the document.
Examples are the Debian Policy Manual itself [3] and the Debian
Python Policy [4].

Thanks for your time.
