Package: libgpg-error0
Version: 1.26-2
Severity: minor

/usr/share/doc/libgpg-error0/copyright contains a block headed
“License: GPL-2.1+”, but it contains the license text for the LGPL.

    License: GPL-2.1+
     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
     it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as
     published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2.1
     of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

I believe libgpg-error0 is in fact licensed under the LGPL, so only the
heading needs to change.
