Ok; I suppose I simply copy&pasted that from another RFS ...

You mean the three stanzas "... is free software; you can redistribute it ...",
"... is distributed in the hope that it will be useful ..." and
"You should have received a copy of ..." ?
I thought that it is sufficient to include a link to the license when
it is one of the common free licenses...

Ok. I will do that.
There is another COPYING file, doc/COPYING.CollabNet; since
subversion is licensed under this license I think this should not
be a problem, other than also adding this file to debian/copyright
(even though this license only applies to two files which are needed
for the build on a specific other OS ...)
