Again once the package goes to Factory all the information and headers

no control speaking for Factory.

If this is really the case, then we - Packagers - still need a way to correct
false headers.

The last time I checked my copyright additions were removed again after
the changed package appeared in Factory.
In the sense of your mail that really needs to be fixed (if it's still
the case) since removing other people's copyright notices could be
considered problematic.
So how about the Factory build people check their search-and-replace
logic to make it possible to add third party copyright notices (again:
if it doesn't work already, otherwise ignore me ;-))
