Follow-up Comment #9, task #15466 (project administration):

[comment #8 comment #8:]
> I think so, because most project README files I see do not have copyright
notices (including several projects I looked at that were hosted on Savannah,
to see examples I could follow),

The actual practices don't override the requirements; on the contrary, the
requirements are written to regulate the practices. 

If you see that some copyrightable files miss copyright or license notices in
a package hosted on Savannah, this is a bug in that package; please ask its
admins fix that.

> When states that "For
copyright purpose, any file more than ten lines long is nontrivial, so it
should have copyright and license notices," the literal interpretation would
mean that the file COPYING would need a project copyright notice, which
clearly does not make sense.

And in particular, the file COPYING does need a copyright notice. (I'm not
quite sure what you mean by "project copyright notice". What the documentation
discusses is valid copyright and license notices.)
