What does this change? Especially as it is not done systematically
for the files already in the distribution.

Actually, what is one expected to do concerning licenses?
"Rsync may be used, modified and redistributed only under the terms of
the GNU General Public License, found in the file COPYING in this
COPYING is GPLv3. So I checked a few files whether this means
gpl3 or gpl3+.
rsync.c states gpl3+, for example.
Some other files have different license statements. There is a subdirectory
popt containing a different COPYING (looks like X11 license).
The file snprintf.c in the subdirectory lib has:
* Copyright Patrick Powell 1995
* This code is based on code written by Patrick Powell (address@hidden)
* It may be used for any purpose as long as this notice remains intact
* on all source code distributions
There may potentially be as many licenses as files in the distribution
(208), that is why I went with only the main statement from the README
What would good practice be?
