Robert Nation has already been widely acknowledged for the foundations he
provided. This change neither detracts from that, nor changes it, and I see
nothing different that needs to happen as a result.

That's a separate issue. Though I'd prefer a BSD-style license, FVWM was
originally in that situation, hence how OpenBSD was originally able to siphon
off 2.x.y in base.
But this change about Copyright doesn't apply here either. FVWM remains under
the terms of the GPL, as-is.
Please don't ever conflate these things again.
