Add proper COPYING file
I went through the entire xorg-server distribution and aggregated all the licenses I could find (except the questionable GPL files, see my last mail). There are many many permutations on essentially the same license terms, but I have been pedantic and treated slight differences as separate licenses. Here is a description of the process I used: tar xvjf /usr/portage/distfiles/xorg-server-1.1.1.tar.bz2 cd xorg-server-1.1.1 find -name '*.c' -o -name '*.h' | xargs gvim egrep -Rli "permission|copyright" * | grep -v "\.[ch]" \ | grep -v "\.in$" | xargs gvim cd .. tar xvjf /usr/portage/distfiles/xorg-server-126.96.36.199.tar.bz2 diff -urNp xorg-server-1.1.1 xorg-server-188.8.131.52 git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/xserver cd xserver git diff xorg-server-184.108.40.206.. For each file, licenses have been aggregated as follows: If 2 files have identical license text but different copyright notices, the copyright notices are aggregated and the license text is included only once. Note that by identical I mean really identical, i.e.: 'AUTHOR(S)' is not the same as 'AUTHORS' 'KEITH PACKARD DISCLAIMS' is not the same as 'KEITH PACKARD AND COMPAQ DISCLAIM' Otherwise, licenses and accompanying copyright notices have been stacked. When going through the changes from 1.1.1 to 220.127.116.11 then HEAD, licenses have been added and removed (so I have reflected this since the original version of my COPYING file). It's slightly concerning to see that even between 18.104.22.168 and HEAD, new license permutations are being added. I'd suggest that a primary license be chosen and this would be indicated at the top of this COPYING file.
