Copy link

File CHANGES has line(s) that are longer that 240 bytes. It can not be copied to ${TARGETLIB]/DOCS, ends with these lines in makelog:
CPC7305: Member CHANGES added to file DOCS in CURLIBMI1.
CPDA037: Could not write to member CHANGES in file DOCS in library CURLIBMI1.
CPC7309: Member CHANGES removed from file DOCS in CURLIBMI1.
CPFA0D4: File system error occurred. Error number 3003.

Editing the file to remove the long line(s) allows it to work.
