Please remove GIF images files from your project and replace them
by an other format (such as PNG or JPEG).
Because of the patents (Unisys and IBM) covering the LZW
compression algorithm which is used in making GIF files,
it's impossible to have free software to generate proper
GIFs. They also apply to the compress program.
For more information read http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/gif.html
To release your project under the GPL, you should put
copyright notices and copying permission statements
at the beginning of every source-code file, and
include a copy of the plain text version of the GPL
Put it in a file named COPYING.
Please follow the advice of http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html.
The GPL FAQ explain the reason behind these recommendations. For
example, there is an entry explaining why the GPL requires including a
copy of the GPL with every copy of the program:
You did not include the correct gpl header...
Please send me an updated tarball.
