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:
Please register your project once more with the changes mentioned
above. The way we handle pending projects makes it difficult to keep
track of projects that have been answered but have not been approved

have to register their projects several times. Thank you for your
Some users find it useful to use the big re-registration URL provided in
the acknowledgment e-mail you received after registration.
