    Standardize COPYING to just contain GPLv2 · e3d65d66
    Will Thompson authored and Marge Bot's avatar Marge Bot committed
    For reasons unknown to me, COPYING previously contained the full text of
    LGPLv2 (not 2.1!) despite the entirety of this project being under GPL
    v2 or later. It also contained a preamble that the license is >= 2, not
    == 2.
    Make COPYING a verbatim copy of GPL v2, and add the "or later" note to
    README. This appears to be standard for similarly-licensed GNOME
    projects I checked (including gnome-shell and mutter). This will also
    cause GitLab to display the correct license, rather than "This project
    is licensed under the Other." with a broken link.
