Hi Mario

Thanks! I hope that following up on savannah-hackers-public will be
the right place.

I understand that each significant file should include licensing
information. Yet for me the question is a more technical one:

Currently BBDB uses a Makefile. But what I really want (in the long
run) is to use autoconf. So I believe I have two options:

- I could put now a Makefile in the repository. Yet later on this
  will be replaced by the files required by autoconf. I know that
  old CVS can give you a hard time if you try to modify the
  structure of the repository...

- The elisp files of BBDB can be compiled fairly easily from within
  Emacs. So right now I could only put these elisp files into the
  repository, but no Makefile at all. And later I add the autoconf
  stuff so that the Makefile becomes a derived file that does not go
  at all into the repository.

Then whatever file(s) are going to reside in the repository will
have the licensing information.

This would be version 3. -- Does this make a difference if the
licensing information for BBDB says

  ...GNU General Public License as published by the Free
  Software Foundation, either version 2 of the License, or (at
  your option) any later version.
