I'm going to refrain from doing this change after all, because the LGPLv2.1 license text is the full license. Only the LGPLv3 license (being a "slim" license) requires having a copy of GPLv3 handy, to understand what exceptions are being granted.
Actually, I can't decide for myself.
The LGPLv2.1 still talks a lot about "ordinary General Public License". Should we do it anyway, as courtesy?
If we go back in time to when LGPLv2.1 was current they said to put the LGPL in COPYING and no mention of including the GPL:https://web.archive.org/web/20070428002817/http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html [^]
I don't really see a point in distributing an extraneous license file and it's not like there aren't a million other places that one can get it if they really want it.
This also addresses the file name debate in 0003295.
This issue is already marked as resolved.
If you feel that is not the case, please reopen it and explain why.
