Please find attached the patch for review. I did run the following
commands before creating this patch.
  $ cd www
  $ svn cp project_license.html license.html

After applying the patch, the status is as follows:
  $ svn status
  M license-1.html
  A + license.html
  M project_license.html

Patch by: me
Suggested by: me
Approved by: kfogel

  * Automatically redirect the requests to license.html after 5 seconds.
    Print the redirect message and provide a link to new license page.
  * New license file. It is copied from project_license.html.
