W dep5-copyright-license-name-not-unique

All reports of dep5-copyright-license-name-not-unique for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This paragraph defines an already defined license.

According to the specification, short license names are required to be unique within a single copyright file.

This tag could be raised by something like this:

     Files: filea ...
     Copyright: 2009, ...
     License: LGPL-2.1
      This program is free software;
             ...
    
    
     Files: fileb ...
     Copyright: 2009, ...
     License: LGPL-2.1
      This program is free software;
      ...
    

In this case, you redefine LGPL-2.1 license. You should use a stand-alone paragraph or merge the two files (using a single paragraph).
