Follow-up Comment #3, task #8745 (project administration):

Thanks for the updated tarball.  To your questions:

1) Including the text of the license is required by the GPL itself, so it's
not something that we have invented.  See  Not all free
software licenses have such a requirement (although it is often implied).

3) This looks like a wrong recommendation to me.  The format of the license
notice is part of the license text and should be consistent.  Furthermore, the
license in COPYING is GPLv3.  If you want to use GPLv2+, then please include
the text of version 2 -- otherwise it is a serious source of confusion.

Probably nothing; this is not a problem as far as Savannah is concerned.  If
the company/entity that develops the proprietary program has registered
trademark, they may ask you to change the name.  This happened in the past for
a few projects (e.g. Bonfire -> Brasero, Gaim -> Pidgin).
