       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?
