Both a GPL copy and a GFDL copy of the text shared between tm.texi and 
target.def need to be checked in (hence not just having tm.texi.in but not 
tm.texi checked in).  If existing text that was only in one place (so only 
under one of GPL and GFDL) is being moved so that there are copies under 
both licenses, then this involves docstring relicensing review (otherwise, 
just copying the generated tm.texi without any extra review for that 
copying is appropriate).
