All reports of copyright-should-refer-to-common-license-file-for-gpl for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

If the package uses some other license that just mentions the GPL and that Lintian should detect as an exception, please file a Lintian bug. If the copyright file must mention the GPL for reasons other than stating the license of the package, please add a Lintian override.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.5 (Copyright information) for details.
