How do I upload an updated package to my PPA without having Quickly mess it up?

I have some problem with quickly submitubuntu command.
The reviewer of my application send me a feedback asking to change the copyright file because it was in a wrong format and with errors... it is "protoborsa" application

I edited the file debian/copyright and I did "quickly submitubuntu" again.. but I thinks, quickly trashed my changes and create a new wrong copyright file.

This is the file

(the duplicate line, for example that property close tag comes from .UI glade files... from an aboutdialog)
is it possible to force quickly to don't touch the copyright file?
Or.. How do quickly generate this file?
(With quickly package --extras , debuild -S , and dput than.. I have same results).

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

have you tried just setting the license with quickly license? – RobotHumans Jul 12 '12 at 8:19
@aking1012 inside the project I have one file that is not mine, and it is shipped with a different licence..I have fear that a "quickly licence" command will change that file licence too. – dega1999 Jul 12 '12 at 9:05
@izx I will try the "manual way" and I will update this post. Many thanks – dega1999 Jul 12 '12 at 9:05
@dega1999: one additional step: after you edit debian/copyright manually, before running debuild run dpkg-source --commit, and enter a name for the "patch" when asked. Then run debuild -s -sa.... – izx Jul 12 '12 at 9:07
with dpkg-source I've got: crazycoder@VBox:~/protoborsa$ dpkg-source --commit dpkg-source: info: 'dpkg-source --commit' is not supported by the source format '1.0' – dega1999 Jul 12 '12 at 20:51

Check out this bug report:
