vim-cpywrite : Generate copyright headers for any open source license

script type
Pass a license identifier to the :CPYwrite command and it will insert the
standard header, if available, at the top of the current buffer.

When g:cpywrite_verbatim_mode is off, licenses with no standard header will
be acknowledged below your author line. Turn on g:cpywrite_verbatim_mode to
use the full license text instead.

This plugin learns your name and email by invoking `git`; it falls back to
your OS user and host names.

Quick Reference
:CPYwrite [{spdx_short_name}]

Fetches the license identified by `spdx_short_name` (without quotes)
-- uses the current value of `g:cpywrite_default_license` when no argument is
given -- supports <tab> completion

:CPYwriteDefaultLicense [{spdx_short_name}]

Sets g:cpywrite_default_license to the given SPDX license identifier (without
quotes) and prints the updated value. Use <tab> for name completion.

Simply prints g:cpywrite_default_license when called with no argument.


Toggles the state of the g:cpywrite_verbatim_mode option and prints a
description of the updated state:

    0 == "standard header/brief"
    1 == "verbatim"


Does the same as calling :CPYwrite with no argument


Maps to <Plug>(cpywrite)

g:cpywrite_verbatim_mode (number; default: 0)

When set to 1, the full license text will be requested, whether or not a
standard header exists. You should only choose this when the license is no
longer than 3-4 paragraphs (e.g. Unlicense, MIT, BSD 1- 2- 3-Clause, etc.)

When set to 0, only standard headers are requested. Licenses with no standard
header will be briefly mentioned below your copyright line.

g:cpywrite_default_license (string; default: 'GPL-3.0-or-later')

Set this to the SPDX identifier of your favourite license. Press <tab> after
the :CPYwriteDefaultLicense or :CPYwrite command for suggestions.
