Hello Nicolas,

The webpage and the COPYING file refer to version 3 of the GPL, but
all source headers in ed-1.14.2.tar.lz say otherwise.

According to the headers, the licenses are:

* buffer.c ed.h globals.c io.c main.c main_loop.c regex.c signal.c: GPL-2+
* carg_parser.c carg_parser.h: BSD-2-Clause
* Changelog configure testsuite/check.sh: FSFUL
* doc/ed.texi: GFDL-NIV-1.3+

I bet that GPL-2+ is an error and BSD/FSFUL/GFDL are correct, but
please confirm this and/or update the header.

AFAIK there is no error. GNU ed as a whole is distributed under GPLv3+, but each source file retains the (GPLv3+ compatible) license notice put there by its original author.

Best regards,
