As I am also getting ready to send a script for contrib, I have two further
1) does it have to be GPL or is LGPL also acceptable to the project?
2) would the Copyright line be ok with "(C) 2004 US Department of Defense,
Navy." or does it need some explicit " & FSF" section?  
# License:      GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL)
# Copyright:    (C) 2004 US Department of Defense, Navy.

Man the fun with releasing things that you create on your employer's time is
getting what they require and what the project require to line up. Then there
is the actual permission and proof of. :)
