    COPYING: add GPL-2 license file · ce863d9b
    Ross Burton authored
    Finally declare gnome-common to be GPL 2+, by doing some source code
    archaeology.
    
    These files we can effectively ignore:
    
    .gitignore
    AUTHORS
    ChangeLog.pre-git
    NEWS
    README
    doc-build/README
    doc/usage.txt
    gnome-common.doap
    macros2/README.cvs-commits
    
    The build files you could argue are boilerplate/uncopyrightable:
    
    Makefile.am
    autogen.sh
    configure.in
    doc-build/Makefile.am
    macros2/Makefile.am
    
    So that leaves:
    
    doc-build/gnome-doc-common.in
    doc-build/omf.make
    doc-build/xmldocs.make
    
    Appeared in e16ea58d. Appears to have
    been copy-pasted from scrollkeeper-example2, LGPLv2.1.
    
    macros2/gnome-autogen.sh
    
    Can be traced back to gnome-libs 88f7376472d3ee54329213c118b46225703d8223, which
    is GPLv2/LGPLv2.
    
    macros2/gnome-code-coverage.m4
    
    LGPLv2.1+.
    
    macros2/gnome-common.m4
    macros2/gnome-compiler-flags.m4
    
    Synced with gnome-core as of 425e5cc9, so
    LGPLv2.1+.
    
    The long-standing assumption is that gnome-common was GPLv2+, so use that
    license. Finally the tyranny of unclear licensing is over!
