I noticed that we have many identical files (GPL, LGPL) in the CVS
tree. I think this is wasteful, especially when the COPYING file is
26kB and the source is 7kB. The options are:
1. leave things as they are: each directory has a copy of the file
2. have a file COPYING with a single line like "../../etc/GNU-GPL"
(symlinks are bad for CVS, AFAIK).
3. mandate a README (or system.txt or system.html) file which will
specify the copying conditions.
what do you think?

Micros**t is not the answer. Micros**t is a question, and the answer is Linux,
(http://www.linux.org) the choice of the GNU (http://www.gnu.org) generation.
UNIX is as friendly to you as you are to it. Windows is hostile no matter what.
