Hm... that strikes me as odd. I BELIEVE what they're trying to say is that if both the source and COPYING contain different licence numbers, the source trumps the COPYING file. Most of the time, the COPYING file is simply the GPL/LGPL copied verbatim from the FSF site. As a result, I can understand why they would say look at the source code. However, I'd suspect in that case, the stuff in the COPYING is what counts. I BELIEVE that the point of the "check the source" rule is to avoid situations where the COPYING file conflicts with the source itself. -- Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
