Default Check LICENSE and SRC_URI changes when bumping GNU packages

Hello package maintainers,


most of the GNU packages had their LICENSE updated to GPL-3 along with
some minor bug fixes or even just documentation changes in recent
times. Please do check the LICENSE and adjust it if needed.

Oh, and one other thing. Attached is a list of ebuild that use
ftp.gnu.org instead of mirror://gnu in their SRC_URI. Please make the
switch. Maybe this should be a QA check as well? repoman would have all
the information it needed... [if HOMEPAGE matches www.gnu.org, then
SRC_URI should NOT match ftp.gnu.org].


Regards,
jer

No, because not all files that are available on ftp://ftp.gnu.org/ are
also on mirror://gnu/. For example, this is the case for the ebuilds
of app-doc/elisp-manual which are false positives in your list.

OK, then maybe the aberrant ebuilds should document that, just like
ebuilds that deviate from the use of emake/econf?

There's already a SRC_URI.mirror check in repoman.
