User-agent: Gnus/5.0808 (Gnus v5.8.8) Emacs/21.1

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-mingw-nt4.0.1381)
 of 2001-10-29 on JCASADONTE

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I use `lm-verify' when preparing a lisp package for posting.
Currently, it checks to see that the Copyright holder is the FSF.
`lm-verify' would be better served (IMHO) by just checking for the
Copyright header, and not make it so that it has to be the FSF.  At
the very least this should be configurable.

Also, the Copyright header is not mentioned in the docs at the top.

Finally, the finder/keyword check could be a tad bit more descriptive
in its failure message, perhaps pointing to a list of acceptable/desired

Patches for the above attached if anyone wants to use them.  Changelog
entry could read something like:

2001-12-06  Joe Casadonte  <address@hidden>

   * lisp-mnt.el (lm-verify) added non-fsf-copyright to argument list
     and conditional; changed keyword error message
   * lisp-mnt.el - changed documentation to add Copyright header
