 The relicense task is described at
+Here is one technique ...
+* Do the whole tree, a section at a time, using script.
+* cd to a directory as high as you dare, e.g. src/documentation/
+* In another window, do a practice run: -p /path/to/svn/forrest/src/documentation 2002-2004 > relicense.log
+* Review the summary output and grep the relicence.log file.
+* Investigate the files that are listed as having problems.
+* When happy do a production run: /path/to/svn/forrest/src/documentation 2002-2004 > relicense.log
+* Again review the summary output and grep the relicence.log file.
+* Note any files that need fixing by hand (see etc/relicense.log).
+* Do a 'svn diff' and make sure it is what you expected, then 'svn commit'.
+* At some stage, use the Java or Python "relicense" script. This only deals
+with the *.java files.
+* Tweak the script to address new issues.
 This is a list of files that we need to ensure do *not* get a new license
 accidently inserted. If you notice any more in your travels then please
