I'm fairly sure that address is outdated - everywhere in libvirt
code uses

Thanks for the reminding, will post a v2, then think we need to
update the address in libvirt codes too?

Hmm, I wonder if we are better off just removing the address
completely. There are no end of bug reports in Fedora reviews
about outdated addresses and the FSF have moved locations
multiple times. I see GNULIB now just writes:

I found this when checking the GNU website mins ago. Yeah, it's better
, per they moves from time to time, ;-)


@Rich, I had to say: I copied the last 3 sentences (the address part)
from libguestfs. Perhaps it needs the updating too.

They've moved again?!

We are currently using:

Free Software Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor,
Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA

and went through a big process of fixing every file to use this
address a little while back.

       Update FSF address.

Rich.


Ah, my libguestfs repo is *too* old, :-)
