Hi Andreas,

the file debian/copyright shall contain all copyright information from 
upstreams files. We don't have to be better than upstream but we also 
should not add information where we think upstream might agree. Of course 
we can tell upstream that there is a problem. Lluis commendably did this 
with his PR. Until this is settled, a comment would be great.

I am not sure why you think there is a discrepancy. go_spec.html was 
created 2011 (at least the header says so), so it is not wrong to state 
2011-2012 in LICENSE. It might be questionable that upstream is the only 
author of that document but than at least the debian/copyright is 
Anyway, one year difference between the information in LICENSE and 
information in file headers (especially if there are files with no 
information at all) are not a reason for a REJECT.
