I just looked at it.  This is much much better than what they had
a few years ago.

However, it still has a grave flaw: it suggests GPLv3 but fails
to explain the difference between GPLv3-or-later and GPLv3-only.
It's recommendation for how to apply the GPL is incorrect practice.

So it does not pass C5, even though the change needed to get there
is much smaller now.

Is there any other remaining doubt about what to say about GitHub today?
