All I know is from Gnulib’s Git history.  The first commit is:

  commit db2e703a947dddddd6ceb7c2a921bae15193d9b4
  Author: Simon Josefsson <address@hidden>
  Date:   Wed Jul 12 07:27:31 2006 +0000

      Add gendocs, from texinfo.

Then in Texinfo’s repo, I see:

  commit cb29b58c3f6b4a635768fcf04eb3ec0e3b36baff
  Author: Karl Berry <address@hidden>
  Date:   Tue Oct 21 23:34:12 2003 +0000

      (EXTRA_DIST): add gendocs.sh and gendocs_template.

My guess is that it’s just a matter of adding a copyright notice and
license in there (assuming it’s copyrightable at all…)

Karl: WDYT?
