2010-01-17Update COPYING with GPLv2 with new FSF addressJunio C Hamano
The mailing address of FSF changed quite a while ago. Also the expansion of the acronym LGPL (which we don't use) is "Lesser GPL" not "Library GPL" these days in recent copies of GPLv2. Update the copy we have with a fresh download of <>. This incidentally removes form-feeds in the text we retained for all these years. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
