No, it's still annoyed because the initials GPL appear more than once in the file, or something such as that.  It should do a better job of detecting actual *licenses* as opposed to, for example

scriptinfo = """asn2deb version 2004-02-17
Copyright 2004, W. Borgert
Free software, released under the terms of the GPL."""

or

    create_file("debian/copyright",
            """This package has been created automatically be asn2deb on
%s for Debian GNU/Linux.
