I did wrote on http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2010-05/msg02442.html
about the patch I intend to apply to the MELT branch (changing copyright
notice of gcc/melt/warmelt*.melt files there).

I also emailed karl@gnu.org about that.

If someone objects to this copyright/license notice change patch please
tell me as soon as possible.

Cheers.
