I think that including this text in the copyright file counts as a
general licence, since we can all agree that the intention was clear.
If the first file (whatever its name is, main.c or ftpd.c or sth)
contains this licence then others are obviously following the same

And I don't think that all other Linux distributions (and BSDs?) can
be wrong in distributing it.

Okay, so can I (or someone else, whoever you prefer) upload the
newest -academ or -vr or bero- version, before potato freezes?
This *is* an IMPORTANT bug that we have to solve, after all...
