I’m fine with any licensing changes you see fit.

I guess we should add proper copyright notices to etc/news.scm too?

Sorry for not starting its translations with a proper copyright, but I
wasn’t sure because of etc/news.scm’s license:

“;; Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification, are
;; permitted in any medium without royalty provided the copyright notice and
;; this notice are preserved.”

I attach a patch adding copyright notices, but I guess the authors
should agree.  I put them in Cc.
