Well, given VCS history I don't think we can set an appropriate copyright or
even authorship without an unbearable effort, since they probably come from
1.x GNOMEs and other similar ancient sources. I remember having done from
scratch a couple of them myself, but that's just a minimal part.

Anyway we're already looking for a solution for this, which is basically is to
replace them all with something with a known license. This will take some
time, as you may figure out.

Yes, it's how author wrote it (it comes from another GPLv3 project). Anyway
this will be fixed.

It's just a pointer, like own's GPL usage, though less verbose, of course, and
much more direct. The pointed file contains all the information, including
copyright and license version.

I'm curious why do you think it doesn't do. Is it not understandable? Do you
know of any case where something like this has been defeated in a court
