Follow-up Comment #4, task #7296 (project administration):

> 1. Please do not move the COPYING (GNU GPL) file from the top
> directory.
> 2. Please put a complete copy of GFDL (not GPL) under doc/source.
> Please name the file distinctly from GNU GPL, the conventional naming

I think placing one file in one directory and the other in another is
confusing. The files e.g. under doc/source are not covered only by

The README points to direction to read:

    doc/source      The source files from which *.html files are generated
    doc/source/LICENSE.txt      Licensing information

In same location as LICENSE.txt, 

    [Edit; I added clarifying texts 
     "see the file COPYING.GNU-GPL" and
     "see the file COPYING.GNU-GFDL"]

there are accompanying files, which contain the full licence texts:


There are descriptive names to the person downloading the source. The
names like these are not so clear:


This may a convention used by the GNU project, but unknown to majority
of the applications.

I also suspects that in Procmail library's case, the *.DOC should
include both GPL and GFDL in this dual licence situation, -- with
explanatory textx -- leading to further confusion.

I'd keep both.
