Hi Chris.  I added an entry in d/copyright for the vendor directory like this:

Files: vendor/github.com/go-openapi/runtime
Copyright: 2015 go-swagger maintainers
License: Apache-2.0

What's the recommended way to document this? I expect this kind of situation will
arise again in the future so I'm keen to work out what's the best way to handle it.

I also added a DEP3 header to the patch itself to provide some context.  The large vendor
patch is only to break a circular dependency between the go-openapi validate and runtime
modules.  I intend to remove the patch after both packages are uploaded.

+Description: Vendor go-openapi runtime module to break circular depdency
+ To complete the upload of both the go-openapi runtime and validate
+ modules it's necessary to vendor the runtime module for the initial
+ upload. Once both packages are in the archive this patch will be removed.
