This file has had no explicit license information noted in it, but
has clearly been created and modified according to the terms of GPLv2
as with the rest of the git code base.

The purpose of relicensing is to allow other GPLv3+ projects (in
particular, the notmuch project: http://notmuchmail.org) to use this
same test-suite structure and to contribute changes back as well.

The relicensing was agreed to by Junio C Hamano here:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.mail.notmuch.general/1389/focus=140156

and in follow-up messages by Sverre Rabbelier, Johannes Schindelin,
Pierre Habouzit, and Johannes Sixt.

Done as requested.

But while we're on the subject, let me at least make a case for
communication by way of Message-ID. The URL above is good for as long as
gmane continues to live, but that may not be as long as the git project
(and its mailing-list archives) are interesting.

Meanwhile, a message ID lives forever and can be used in multiple
contexts. For example, gmane does already support message-ID-based URLs:

http://mid.gmane.org/7vaav3bnr5.fsf at alter.siamese.dyndns.org

That interface happens to only display the single message, (requiring
clicking on the subject to see the thread), but one can imagine gmane
getting a similar interface to display the thread directly from the
message ID.

Meanwhile, people using systems like notmuch can also use the message ID
directly to view the thread, with something like:

    notmuch show id:7vaav3bnr5.fsf at alter.siamese.dyndns.org

So I'm very much in favor of using message IDs more regularly, (and just
expecting that users and their tools will be more accepting of them).

But for now, you've hopefully got your commit message the way you want
it. :-)
