Since it was mentioned in the other area about the pkg-nvidia git
area, should I still fork and send pull emails? Having 3-4 repos
sounds more tedious/complicated.

Oh I was just taking a super conservative approach since they wrote
all the info in the man pages and worded it their way so I was taking
a better safe than sorry approach.

I forgot to ask about this. In the copyright file I had

That is correct even after modification? Obviously I'm not an expert
in copyrights and licenses. Heh.

I will probably move them back to
Files: debian/*.1
