The windows installer shows the GPL during installation but does not create a copy of the GPL in the doc directory. Maybe the other binary packages suffer the same problem, I have not investigated yet.

I don't know if this is a GPL violation, but consider it a severe problem and have therfor set the priority higher than average.

    The copy of GPL is in the SDCC installation directory: C:\Program Files\SDCC\COPYING.txt, there is also a link from the Start menu: Start -> Programs -> SDCC -> GPL 2 License. Do you think that license should be copied to the doc directory?

    My bad, I'm sorry. How could I have missed it? I really don't know. It seems I expected it in the doc directory but the root of the installation is fine too. Thanks for pointing it out.
