  Those patches fixed a bug (and two merged) that had been opened for 2
  and a half years. I think it'd be useful if you tried to contact the
  authors of the patches, and try to fix them instead of removing them?

  Still, grep.1 remains, which (a) contains verbatim paragraphs from
  grep.texi yet (b) comes in the upstream tarball with a license notice.
  Does this mean that grep.1 is?:

    - under the GFDL, so should be removed
    - under the GPL (the general license of the tarball), despite
      sharing contents with grep.texi
    - undistributable, because it has no license attached
