Re: License for documentation

That's a special license for the texinfo output, which allows people to
distribute copies of the texinfo output for the manual without distributing
the manual source (the .texi file) as the GPL would require. The source of the
manual (the .texi file) is under the same license as the rest of the package,
which is the one in the file "COPYING".
