#1072 closed Bug (fixed)

automake is mistakenly including a GPL3 `COPYING' file

Description

For historical reasons Transmission has kept its license description in Transmission/LICENSE, which is differs from the common Unix practice of using a file named `COPYING'. Automake is providing a default COPYING file for us, and that default specifies GPL3. Our MIT/GPL2 license is already convoluted enough; we don't need to add GPL3 into the mix.

Renaming LICENSE' as COPYING' should be enough to tell automake to not meddle anymore.
