I added Installed-Size field and put informal
/usr/share/doc/johnny/copyright into package and problem is faded.
Ubuntu does not say "The package is of bad quality" more.

It seems that copyright file should be structured to fill license
field of package. Currently package viewers show "License: unknown"
for my package and I do not see other way to make them show something

So problem is not with package's signature (I do not have it).
