Good suggestion. Thanks.

I sure intended to update all my packages witihn the next week - but 
with Real Life(tm) interferring all the time that might be optimistic, 
so makes good sense to hit on the arch:any ones first.

I was not aware, no. Gotta check if I missed subscribing to some 
additional perl-pkg list or what happened there...

Thanks, Riku - I never thought of it that way, but you are right that it 
makes sense to only check in binary-arch (if possible, because also it 
needs to be done before the actual build, to only scan source, not 
built binaries).

It seems the cause of #466852 is that for some reason newlines in 
copyright_hints are sometimes squshed, and not equally on all archs. I 
guess it is time to rewrite the sed+awk+grep mess with a little perl 
loop :-)
