don't forget your copyright line. Otherwise looks good.

I didn't forget.  But I don't consider these 6 lines to be in any respect
novel, creative or original.  The FSF guidelines for what is regarded as
"legally significant" for copyright purposes mentions the limit of 15 lines.

In fact, I challenge anyone to offer a definition of aspell-dict-de which
works in Guix AND satisfies our rather strict coding style, and does not
differ from the above, except in whitespace.

In other words, there is nothing novel or creative in what I have written.
Thus, is would be dishonest (perhaps illegal?) for me to claim copyright on
this work.

I think this patch deserves it.  My understanding is we just don't have
a policy on adding copyright lines: some people add a copyright line
even for a simple package update.

John is right; simple package updates are not legally significant
either.  But then I think “too many” copyright lines is better than not
enough, and it’s not worth bothering.
