I noticed that the R reference manual seems to be missing the license
permissions on the copyright page.  Below is a patch to "refman.top"
which adds the same permissions as the @permission{} macro in

I'm filing this bug as I have been preparing to publish the R
Reference Manual (in several volumes). I plan to donate 5 EUR to the
R-foundation for each set of manuals sold.

best regards,

Brian Gough
