doc/fdl.texi is removed below
If I'm understanding correctly, removing fdl.texi seems wrong to
me. I'm supposing it's created dynamically from a copy in gnulib
or somewhere now? But the license can't be updated merely by
changing that file. The @copying block has to be updated also. In
fact, the @copying block now says 1.2, but (I'm guessing) fdl.texi
v1.3 is what gets pulled in.
I think the right outcome is:
1) change 1.2 to 1.3 in @copying in inetutils.texi.
2) keep a copy of fdl[-1.3].texi in the repo.
3) in the event that the fdl is updated, both things need to be
updated. I don't know of any plausible way to automate it, and
updates are so infrequent, it doesn't seem worth the effort.
You raise good points and thank you for catching them, I am not sure
what we should do. coreutils for example doesn't include fdl.texi,
and coreutils is generally our guideline when it comes to these
Jim and co, what do you think?
