    COPYING: Update to MIT Expat License rather than MIT X License · f27a48e1
    Bryce Harrington authored
    MIT has released software under several slightly different licenses,
    including the old 'X11 License' or 'MIT License'.  Some code under this
    license was in fact included in X.org's Xserver in the past.  However,
    X.org now prefers the MIT Expat License as the standard (which,
    confusingly, is also referred to as the 'MIT License').  See
    When Wayland started, it was Kristian Høgsberg's intent to license it
    compatibly with X.org.  "I wanted Wayland to be usable (license-wise)
    whereever X was usable."  But, the text of the older X11 License was
    taken for Wweston, rather than X11's current standard.  This patch
    corrects this by swapping in the intended text.
    In practical terms, the most notable change is the dropping of the
    no-advertising clause.
