transcend for Debian

Mail from "Jason Rohrer" <> regarding the program's
license (GPL):

Thu, 13 Oct 2005 10:19:53 -0400

Hey, thanks for working on this.

I use the same makefile templates for all of my projects.  The __ppc__ flag is 
used by some crypto code that is in other projects.  That flag is *not* 
necessary for Transcend (so feel free to remove it).

I generally do not include a copy of the GPL with my software.  That's just 
the way I do things... maybe I should change that.  Some people also include a 
copy (or portion) of the GPL at the top of each and every source file.  As a 
programmer, I feel that this wastes screen space, since I constantly have to 
scroll past it every time I look at the code.

What kind of distribution are you making?  If it is a binary distribution 
(like a binary .deb), then you don't need a license file, right?  Maybe you need 
one for a source distribution.

You have my permission to add a copy of the GPL, or a readme that mentions the 
GPL, in whatever distribution you create.

Thanks again for working on a package.  Please let me know how it turns out.
