[ REQ 6865]: /gd/gnu/libc-copy
Is anybody still using the /gd/gnu/libc-copy on the gnu.org machines as a source of files to put in their packages? It looks like that directory has not been updated in over a year, though several of the glibc source files that other packages use have changed since then. It used to be the canonical thing for other GNU packages to use the source files from this directory when they wanted copies of various files that are maintained as part of glibc (getopt, glob, etc). (That directory used to get updated automatically from the glibc sources by copying the files and replacing the LGPL copyright message with a GPL copyright message.) If it is of use to anyone, I can probably make that directory get updated automatically again (it would now be from the glibc cvs repository on sourceware.cygnus.com); we can also make the directory available for ftp from alpha.gnu.org if that is helpful. But since it has been so long since this directory was kept up to date, I imagine people maintaining other packages have other schemes in place for getting these files from glibc. If this directory is not of use to anyone, then I won't bother making it work again.
