Visibility: warning

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).
