I'm not sure if this is also true for GPLv3, but the GPLv2 wording was 
targeted at software, not at documentation. While nothing prevents it 
from being used for documentation, I don't think it's a very good 
license for documentation. For a GNU project, I think the GNU Free 
Documentation License would be a better choice.
