Follow-up Comment #3, task #15036 (project administration):

> I specified that it is both Free and Open Source. I write this because users
often confuse Free Software with Freeware, and this is the only way to let
people know in a certain way that they can also download the source code.

No, it isn't the only way. If you think there is a dangerously high risk of
confusion, you can explain in a few words that free software is about freedom
rather than cost, and link to the Free Software Definition. Just downloading
the source code is not the freedom we care of, we want all the four freedoms.

> The README / LEGGIMI.txt files clearly wrote: "You can distribute and keep
this note freely with the program"

Hmm. I'm sorry, I missed that.

The files still lack copyright notices, and these distribution terms are not
free: they don't allow modification, and in the context of copyright anything
is forbidden unless explicitly permitted. If you'd like to license these files
permissively, you could use the license recommended by GNU Maintainer
