[Perl/perl5] f29bc1: skip testing .github/ if doesn'tappear t...
Message ID:
  Branch: refs/heads/blead
  Commit: f29bc1413d76f0960f58d4a3c04b75d4680688c1

  Changed paths:
    M t/porting/copyright.t

  Log Message:
  skip testing .github/ if doesn't appear to be a README

git on windows at least of 2.37.1 does not checkout symbolic links
as symbolic links, leaving them as files containing the filename
linked to.

This meant this test against .github/ failed, since it only
contained "../README": nothing that appears to be a copyright message

I considered testing that .github/ was a symbolic link
but 8975221916 suggests that it may eventually become more distinct
from the root README file, so instead check its size. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
