Update of task #13326 (project administration):

             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #2:

hi again. i agree, all references are to "COPYING", and thankfully GPLv1
includes the sentence:

  If the Program does not specify a version number of the license,
  you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

Thus I am inclined to interpret this in our favor -- and surely as the author
would wish. and should have done in the first place -- as meaning it can be
distributed under any GPL version.

Therefore I approved it, and changed the license to GPLv2+ (rms does not want
GPLv1 to persist).  Please update COPYING to the gplv2 text and normalize the
copyright notices. 

I will attach the GPLv1 text found in the tarball, for the record.
