+*** Check the copyright
+Now run `make check_copyrights`.
+That command does a very crude check to try and catch the files which lack the
+"copyright FSF" line (that's the role of the first `find`), and to catch the
+files which still have a "copyright <not-the-fsf>" somewhere.
+If your package fails that check, you need to update the $(CR_EXCEPTIONS) file.
