Whoops. I almost forgot something useful.
In perl packages where the license text is often missing, there is a
simple way to generate the needed text. In your spec, in %setup use:
perldoc -t perlgpl > COPYING
perldoc -t perlartistic > Artistic
Then, you can use this for your %files:
%doc COPYING Artistic
Thanks to Ville SkyttÃ for reminding me of this.
