* COPYING: Explain how gnulib-tool converts licence headers.
Almost all wording by Eric Blake.

2 The files in here are mostly copyright (C) Free Software Foundation, and
3 are under assorted licenses. Mostly, but not entirely, GPL.
5 Many modules are provided dual-license, either GPL or LGPL at your
6 option. The headers of files in the lib directory (e.g., lib/error.c)
7 state GPL for convenience, since the bulk of current gnulib users are
8 GPL'd programs. But the files in the modules directory (e.g.,
9 modules/error) state the true license of each file, and when you use
10 'gnulib-tool --lgpl --import <modules>', gnulib-tool either rewrites
11 the files to have an LGPL header as part of copying them from gnulib
12 to your project directory, or fails because the modules you requested
13 were not licensed under LGPL.
15 Some of the source files in lib/ have different licenses. Also, the
16 copy of maintain.texi in doc/ has a verbatim-copying license, and
17 doc/standards.texi and make-stds.texi are GFDL.
